It began with one woman, then grew to two. Now there are eight women from Lake Pointe Baptist Church, Dadeville, who get together to sew dresses, duffle bags, coats — anything that might be of use to someone in need.
The women have made dresses for little girls in Kentucky; sent 30 coats to Maryland; sewed duffle bags for foster children; and collected items for the Mississippi River Region’s backpack ministry.
Two of the women are homebound but are still seeking ways to serve the Lord at ages 87 and 94. Combined, the two ladies have made more than 100 dresses and 14 pairs of shorts.
But it’s not just the women of Lake Pointe Baptist who are active in missions projects.
Members of the Tallapoosa Baptist Association church volunteer at the area food bank quarterly and continually collect items to contribute to the food bank.
The church also participates in the association-wide Love Tallapoosa County, which encourages members and churches to show the love of Christ in their communities. For instance, members of Lake Pointe took to Bill Nichols Retirement Home to visit and share a devotion with the residents there. (TAB)
