Craft Therapy

In this do-it-yourself connect group, we will be meeting every other week to get creative and do hands-on activities while developing and deepening relationships with others in the church. The leaders of this group will prepare a different craft for each day, and will supply most of the materials. You may also be asked to bring a particular material to complete the craft. To cover the cost of supplies we ask that each person bring $2 every time they participate.
