Did you know … Murphy-Harpst Center is a United Methodist Women National Mission Institution? It’s one of four in Georgia. Did you know … they serve the most challenging youth, many of whom are placed there by the state because there is nowhere else they can go to get the care they need? These two questions lead to the most important question that you can ask…How can I send a hug and a prayer to these kids? The answer is as easy as coming to our Fellowship Hall on Monday mornings and tying knots!
Jean Hulsey leads a hands-on workshop monthly on the first Monday at 10:00am in The Connection. Participants will learn to make no-sew fleece blankets Murphy-Harpst provides round-the-clock therapeutic care for Georgia's most horrifically abused children so that they may heal and grow in a safe environment. Upon arrival at the center, children receive a fleece blanket to physically wrap them in warmth and comfort. Murphy-Harpst is excited that we will be providing for this element of care.
If you would like to make a donation to purchase fleece, you may note your donation "Blanket Ministry". If you would like to purchase fleece, please contact Jean Hulsey for exact requirements. You may also make blankets at home! The children at the Murphy-Harpst Centers are surely blessed by your efforts!
The next meeting will be the first Monday in October.
