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