Knitting Hearts, a women’s outreach ministry of Lazybrook Baptist Church, meets the first and third Saturday of each month from 10:00 a.m. to noon at the church, 1822 W. 18th Street. There is no cost and no need to buy supplies.
The core of Knitting Hearts is community friendship and interaction in a supportive, gentle, peaceful environment. Women of all ages, from various backgrounds, come for a variety of reasons. Many women come to relax, to relieve stress and to take a break for a few hours a month from their hectic work, career and family lives. All skill – and even no skill – levels are welcome.
Besides being an outreach ministry to individual women, Knitting Hearts members have made baby booties and prayer shawls for people at N.W. Memorial Hospital, decorated sandals for children in other countries and hold a Christmas sale every year the proceeds of which go to One Mission Ministries in Mexico.
If you would like to relax for a few hours each month, connect with old friends and make new ones, learn or advance a skill at no cost in a quiet environment and, if you choose, take part in a group project of benefit to the community, feel free to check out Knitting Hearts. For questions, contact the church at (713) 864-1470 and a Knitting Hearts member will get back to you.
