Wednesday Fellowship is a support group for seniors with an emphasis on fellowship and service. They meet Wednesdays at 10:00 am (with the exception of the first Wednesday of the month when they meet at noon for lunch and a bible study). These weekly meetings are considered ‘work days’ with much quilting, knitting strips for blankets and prayer shawls, and baptism blankets being made. Work days last until 2:00 pm with a break for lunch at noon. Members bring bag lunches and everyone takes a turn bringing a dessert for the group and making coffee and tea.
If you’re not quite a senior yet, but would like to help with this ministry, the group is always looking for donations of more materials – fabric and yarn – to use in making their creations. At the end of each year the blankets made are bagged up and donated to various missions and charities in Winnipeg and around the world.
