From the beginning, Nativity Lutheran Church has been engaged in the communities of Barrow and Walton County; We have made Bethlehem our home and care very much about what our neighbors care about: safety, healthy youth, supportive infrastructure, and affordable services for all. Our statement is
Sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ through worship, learning, witness, and service.

We would love to have more volunteers to be able to take turns with the time or to fill in when someone can't be there. We must always have at least two people there whenever we go there.

The Prayer Shawl & Quilting Ministry is a group of people who enjoy quilting, crocheting and knitting.
We have made shawls, which are given to people who have a chronic illness or surgery to wrap around them when they pray. Plus we do chemo hats and lap robes as needed.
We make quilts which are then sent through Lutheran World Relief to serve refugees all around the world.
We also provide quilts for local homeless shelters and youth homes throughout the community.
Our quilting ministry continues through Covid, but is mostly done independently. If you are interested in helping, contact Jean Hunt and she can give you ideas of how you can participate.
80 quilts will be delivered to Trinity Lutheran Church on Friday, August 27. These will then be shipped overseas to refugee camps. If you would like to be involved with the quilting program please reach out to Jean Hunt.
The Quilting Ministry is asking for donations of (used) curtains, tablecloths, upholstery material, bed sheets or just fabric that we could use for making quilts. Betty cuts the fabric into squares so we can make the quilt tops and we use the sheets for the back of the quilts. Any fabric is good. Examples are rayon, silk, satin broad cloth, cotton, muslin, corduroy, flannel, etc. Thanks!! The donations can be left in the quilt room or I can meet anyone or go to their home to pick it up. - Jean
For more information on the Quilting Ministry, contact Jean Hunt.
We have planted an assortment of vegetables; tomatoes, peppers, onions, potatoes, cucumber, etc. Assorted herbs; basil, dill, rosemary, as well as blueberry and blackberry bushes.
If you're hungry, come on by and enjoy some homegrownbboodness!
We need members of the congregation to help water, harvest, and weed the garden. Once foods become available we will be taking them to the Food Pantry in downtown Winder, and sharing with our ministry in Briscoe Mill.
