INTERDENOMINATIONAL LAITY-LED WORSHIP
Even with the change of seasons, the Sunday noontime interdenominational Laity-led worship service continues at Idle Wheels. Inspired as a result of the Shelter-in-Place that has included no in-person indoor worship in our facilities, (like at Mariposa UMC), a group gathers on Breeze Way for a brief worship time of prayer concluding with the Lord's Prayer. Physical distancing precautions followed.
(Note: Service is about 10-15 minutes)
During his life as a man, he humbled himself by being fully obedient to God, even when that caused his death - death on a cross. So God raised him up to the most important place and gave him the Name that is greater than any other name. God did this so that every person will bow down to honor the Name of Jesus. Everyone in heaven, on earth, and under the earth will bow. They will all confess, "Jesus Christ is Lord," and this will bring glory to God the Father. (Philippians 2:8-11 ERV)

Dream Weavers is Restarting! Dream Weavers are crafters who use their gifts with knitting needles and crochet hooks to craft a variety of items, including prayer shawls, chemo caps, scarves and hats for the homeless, and caps for premature babies.
We meet on the fourth Thursday of every month at 9:30 am in the second floor conference room (Joe Kidd Hall). Tentative start will be in January 2022. Be on the look-out for updates.
All crafters are welcome who want to share their skills and make a difference in people's lives. We also welcome donations of yarn for our members to use. If you have a stash that needs a home, bring it to the church. We especially welcome small amounts that can be used in creative shawls and scarves.
Visit our web page for information and lots of resources.
