Ladies Night Out
On the fourth Monday of every month the ladies of the church gather at a local restaurant for food and conversation. In December they share a white elephant gift exchange. It is a great way to get to know other women in the church and all are welcome to attend.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
God Covers and Protects Us All with Love
Join our knitters and crocheters every 1st and 3rd Monday throughout the year at 7 p.m. in the youth room to enjoy fellowship and create beautiful shawls for those who are facing illness or grief – or a joy such as the birth of a child. If you’ve always wanted to know how to knit or crochet, this is your chance. Teachers are on hand to get you started…even if you’ve never held a pair of knitting needles before or don’t know how a crochet hook works. For information contact Carol Fogle.
The group is “going pink” for a couple months as they make various pink items (hats, dishcloths, scarves) for sale at the local “Girls Night Out” in June to benefit breast cancer research.
Meals on Wheels
One Hour of Time and a World of Good
April and September are the two months Federated helps deliver meals to shut-ins and those persons in our community in need. For those who have never participated, be assured it is easy and simple and you will be paired with an experienced “buddy” to make rounds throughout Sycamore.
Federated has participated in Meals on Wheels almost since its inception. For information or to volunteer contact Alice Whitney.
The kiss of the sun for pardon, the song of the birds for mirth….
In the summer and fall of 2011, volunteers brought our courtyard back to beautiful life, pulling weeds, laying down compost and planting a variety of new perennials. Our Garden Club held a plant sale during the Spring 2012 Thrift Sale and raised funds for a storage box as well as additional plants. Plans are in the works for a similar sale at the Spring 2013 Thrift Sale. A stone path has been laid through the courtyard from Dutton Hall to the Settle room. Volunteers are needed who love to dig in the soil to help keep things blooming and looking well maintained. We especially need people to keep the area watered. Georgiann Baird is the Chief Trowel. If you’d like to be part of the group give her a call.
