Imagine being homeless and living outside at the whim of the weather’s unpredictable elements.  What if you could make a difference in someone’s life AND address an environmental crisis at the same time?  All it takes is a loving heart and a willing spirit.  Join us in fellowship as we learn what it takes to make waterproof sleeping mats for the homeless out of plastic shopping bags AND help reduce the harmful effects of plastic bags on the earth and nature. There’s something for everyone whether it’s collecting and sorting plastic bags, cutting strips, knotting the loops together to form the plastic yarn, or crocheting the plarn into mats.  Contact Judy Rothwell at redcom13@gmail.com or the church office at church.office@mtzionumc.org for additional information.
