Fun with Purpose Event

Country Church Crafters Friends ~

Thanks to all who have participated in past Fun with a Purpose events. What started as a one-time fund-raiser to meet an urgent need has blossomed into the past 2-1/2 years of fun and fellowship!

As January draws to a close, we are eagerly awaiting signs of spring . . . so together we will encourage the crocus to push up out of the snowy ground and remind us that Spring is Coming! You can master this beautiful creation under the direction of our very own Kay Taylor with the help of our Country Church Crafters. All supplies are provided (and even some light refreshments are included) AND this masterpiece will be yours to keep and display!

On Saturday, February 17, 2018, from 1:00 PM to 3:30 PM (or 4:00 PM for stragglers), we will be gathering at McKendree UMC where all of this fantastic creativity will come together . . . . . this is a fund-raiser and ALL PROCEEDS are targeted for a new mission project called "Families Helping Families" spear-headed by Ashley Hornbarger. The first plan is to make 30 tie fleece blankets to be delivered with stuffed animals to children who are patients at Hershey Med Center by the end of February! And Fun with a Purpose wants to help make this dream a reality.

the registration fee for the painting class is payable in advance in the amount of ONLY $20 . . . ALL supplies and refreshments are provided . . . and the masterpiece is YOURS (as well as wonderful memories of a spectacular winter day of creativity in anticipation of the warmth and beauty of Spring)!!

Please consider joining us at the Social Hall of McKendree UM Church located at 3708 Delta Road, Airville . .. . we are hoping to host at least 20 participants and we want YOU to be included! Call Julie at the parsonage (717.862.3700) with any questions or concerns or REPLY to this e-mail ( . . . there is no child-care provided, but children and youth 10 and older are ENCOURAGED to register and participate with you! The Country Church Crafters will be available to assist all participants throughout the session!

We need to know if you will attend no later than FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 9 and your $20 payment (cash or check payable to "McKendree UMC") reserves YOUR seat and supplies and a FUN-tastic opportunity for a painting lesson which just could change your life! ADVANCE PAYMENT is REQUIRED so send your check today to McKendree UMC, 3708 Delta Road, Airville, PA 17302, and note on the Memo Line: "Paint Class".
