S.A.L.T. Mission

The S.A.L.T. leadership team has been planning some wonderful events that we want you to know about. You must register for events that include lunch. Plan now to attend, and contact Betty Powell if you want to help!


SALT BOOK CLUB: The next discussion meeting will be Tuesday, May 3, 2022, at 11:00 in the SALT room. We will be discussing the book  Cousins by Betty Kilby Baldwin and Phoebe Kilby.  It is the amazing real-life account of two women, one who discovers her slaveholding ancestors and the other a descendant of those slaves who is today a minister's wife.  This is their story of how each faced the truth and how healing, forgiveness, and friendship developed between them, and how together they are now working to promote racial healing. Join us as we explore and experience many emotions with them on their journey and our own reactions to the book. Questions? Contact Ruth Metzger at 513-309-2563

 The SALT Book Club's next meeting will be Tuesday, July 5, 2022, at 11:00 AM in the SALT room.  We will be discussing the book The Case for Grace, An Investigation Into the Heart of God by Lee Strobel.  This author says that this was the most difficult book he has written because it was the most personal book he has written.  His previous books were written after investigating the evidence for Christ and becoming a convinced believer and disciple of Christ.  This book was written after experiencing health problems,  facing issues from his past, realizing his life with Christ had been performance-based, then experiencing the GRACE of God and being TRANSFORMED.  In this book Mr. Strobel has recorded, in addition to his own, the stories of other people around the world who have also experienced God's grace in amazing and astonishing ways.

We will also take part of our time to discuss The Yada Yada Prayer Group Gets Down which is Book Two in the series since it has become so popular with our Book Club that we can't stop with just the first book!!!!

QUILT OUTREACH: Quilt for a shelter for abused women and children and for area homeless shelters. If you haven’t quilted before, we can teach you!  Contact Carol Johnston at (214) 803-1785 or email her at cjohnston25@sbcglobal.net for time and place.

Thank you for the generous donation of fabrics and sewing machines. And thank you to the many people who have been washing and ironing the donated fabric prior to our quilting.

Our congregation is so generous and supportive! You are a blessing!! Just today we received the gift of a sewing machine delivered to the church by an anonymous donor. Our whole quilting team is grateful and touched by the generosity you have shown us.

 

The Knotty Ladies Are Back In The House

 The group has been working steadily since that time. The original group of knitters and crocheters included Judi Dreith, Teresa  Winhusen, Mary Jo Ullum, and Susie Seward.

Since the pandemic started, they have not met in person, but a few have continued to knit and crochet prayer shawls. They have donated over 700 prayer shawls to Christ Hospital.

Over the years, the Knotty Ladies have made countless hats and scarves for the   NEEDS pantry, Matthew 25 Ministries, Deer Park Schools, and Oyler School in Price Hill, in addition to the shawls for Christ Hospital.

The Knotty Ladies will again meet monthly in person. The planning meeting is April 11, from 12:30 until 1:30 in the S.A.L.T. room.  Please join us.

If you have yarn you would like to donate to the group, a bin will  be set up in the SALT room, marked "For the Knotty Ladies."

 

At our quilting meeting on January 20th, the representative from the YWCA Battered Women’s Shelters joined us; to meet each of our quilters, tell us about the work their organization does in helping women and children escape from domestic abuse, and to accept the quilts we have made. Since September, the team has made 14 quilts;  with the first one made for Logan Hamilton, son of Melody Hamilton. Melody is the community outreach coordinator at KBC as well as a Women’s Bible study teacher. Logan is still recovering from a horrible fall a few months ago, and we wanted him to have a quilt. The Y was given 13. Along with the 13 quilts, a young woman ( not from KBC) heard about the ministry and wanted to help. She purchased and delivered 12 lovely blankets for the shelter.  She stopped by on her lunch hour so we got to meet and thank her. Justin prayed a beautiful prayer of blessing: for the women who lovingly made the quilts for women and children they probably will never get to meet; and for the women and children receiving them,  that not only would the quilt bring them warmth, but be the beginning of healing.

It was energizing and uplifting. We are now back to quilting, with the goal of giving every woman and child in the shelter their own quilt. If you have questions about the quilt ministry or are interested in quilting with us, contact Carol Johnston at (214) 803-1785.
