Crafters Connect

OUR MISSION:

To make disciples of Jesus Christ by teaching and learning home arts skills within a Christian context and prayerful atmosphere

OUR PURPOSE:

Crafters Connect primarily exists for attendees to know Christ better and make Christ known to others through the teaching and learning of home arts such as quilting, knitting, crocheting, scrap-booking, paper-crafting, photography, crock-pot cooking, bread-making, etc. Secondarily, home arts items will be made throughout the year for various (undetermined) outreach ministries of either Connect United Methodist Church or Oklahoma United Methodist Conference (such as Pearl’s Hope or Exodus House).

Servant leaders/contacts: Susan Grove and Karen Gross. Please contact Susan or Karen with any questions or interests for future class events. (Inquires for more information on this group may also be sent to info@connectumc.org. )

Membership: There is no formal membership; anyone may attend any/all of the sessions. Open to any Connect UMC member or attendee: women, men, youth/teens (when attending with participating parent or guardian)
