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 challenged youth? Many of these youth are placed at the Murphy-Harpst Center by the state because there is nowhere else they can go to get the care they need after experiencing different levels of abuse. 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 monthly gatherings and tying knots!
Jean Hulsey leads a monthly workshop every first Monday at 10:00am in The Connection, where participants will learn to make no-sew fleece blankets. These blankets are taken to the Murphy-Harpst Center. When children arrive at the center, they receive a fleece blanket to wrap them in warmth and comfort. Murphy-Harpst is thankful that we provide 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 on your own or make a blanket at home, please contact Jean Hulsey or the Church Office.
