Making Felted Soaps

Discovering Your Gifts
March 14 – 9 a.m.-3 p.m. – Morgan House
Join Michelle Pederson, our ministerial intern, for a reprise of this popular program. Each person has unique gifts, skills, and talents. Have you wondered how yours might fit with the needs of FUUN and the wider community? We will uncover what specifically calls to your heart and what gifts you bring to respond to that issue. Through a process of discernment (deep listening to the self) we will explore such topics as what energizes you, matching motivations to opportunities, and identifying barriers that might keep you from using your gift. Join us for this fun filled and rewarding exploration.
This class filled up fast the first time, so email Michelle now to reserve your space: firstname.lastname@example.org. Everyone will be asked to bring a bag lunch. Childcare will be available; let Michelle know when you email her if you will be bringing children, how many, and their ages.
Pressed Flower Original Cards
March 21 – 1 p.m.-4 p.m. – Pasto-Crosby Home
Join Lisa Pasto-Crosby and Paige DeBenedittis to make these cards for the Herb Fair. These are a popular item, and give maximum range for creativity, since they are a larger space than the bookmarks. We’ll be restocking the notebooks, so the flower choices should be excellent! Contact Lisa at the number in the church directory or at email@example.com for directions to her home.
