Tis the season of GIVING (and yes, receiving).
My Christmas wish for Woven Women is to encourage the precious hearts at The Courage House with the message that they are LOVED BEYOND MEASURE!
The Courage House is a temporary home for rehabilitating women with drug and alcohol addictions. Many of these gals have attended our Woven events over the years. If you have met them, you know just how beautifully broken they are. We come alongside them once a month through our Gifted Hands ministry–by providing materials and leading them through a hands-on creative project, as we love on them and pray for them.
This Christmas Woven will bless The Courage House women with a tote bag filled with basic needs that we often take for granted. Woven has purchased 24 lovely jute Tote Bags with the words: Loved Beyond Measure with John 3:16 as well as a small felted zip bag with a 7 day devotional.
WE NEED YOUR HELP
Below is a list of what we need to fill them. If you are interested in purchasing items, just drop them off at Newark Naz, 200 S Williams St. If you attend our Sunday services, just label your donation WOVEN and leave it at the Information Desk. If you prefer, you may donate towards our purchases (click OTHER and label as Woven). Each bag with contents is valued at $25.
We will be distributing the bags initially to the current residents as Christmas gifts. This will then become an ongoing Welcome ministry for each new resident when she arrives at The Courage House. I can’t think of a more important message for these women when they arrive– to know that they are LOVED BEYOND MEASURE!
THE WOVEN WISH LIST:
Body Wash–full size
Body Lotion–full size
Dove Beauty Bar
Fleece throw blanket ($3-5)
If someone were to provide the funds, we would love to add a Bible for each of the women! Thank you for your support of Woven Women and especially in loving The Courage House women.
~YOU are Loved Beyond Measure!
