We all need a plan for our money. Financial Peace University (FPU) is that plan! It teaches God's ways of handling money. Through video teaching, class discussions and interactive small group activities, FPU presents biblical, practical steps to get from where you are to where you've dreamed you could be. This plan will show you how to get rid of debt, manage your money, spend and save wisely, and much more! Class begins Thursday, February 6, 2014 at the Springfield United Methodist Church.  ALL are welcome to attend.  Please contact Suzi Miller at 402-490-0982 for more information.

HEARTS TO HANDS MINISTRY

 

We are inviting any and all who are interested in Knitting, Crocheting and Sewing, to participate in our ministry.  We have three programs that we support, KAS Care which is an organization that puts together 8x8 inch squares of knitting or crocheting to create blankets for orphan children in South Africa.  What is needed by them are 8x8 inch squares of knitted/crocheted squares with a tail of 24 inches attached to it. 

 We also support our local NICU with preemie baby items for families who will be taking their precious babies home, who are still quite small.  We donate hats, booties and blankets.  And this can take the form of knitting, crocheting or sewn items.

  And the last item we are looking for help with are Chemo Caps.  These are provided to Methodist Hospital to those people who are going through Chemotherapy.  They should be made with soft fibers and fabrics, since their skin is very sensitive.  These also may be knitted, crocheted or sewn.

Hearts to Hands meets every Thursday evenings at the 1st United Methodist Church in Springfield.  But it is not necessary for you to attend the meetings.  If you would like to participate in this all we ask is that you bring your items to the church or library.

Any and all items will be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.
