Seafarer's Ministry

The Seafarer’s Ministry has been around a very long time. One of the purposes of the ministry is to provide hats for the  seamen who spend many hours on cold ships crisscrossing the oceans.

Walnut Grove supports the Seafarer’s Ministry and is looking for individuals and churches to donate ball caps (new or used), knit hats, or yarn with which to make knit hats, crocheted hats, as well as fleece hats.

Donations can be dropped off at the association office. Marion Hughes will then pick them up and deliver them to Charleston or Cape Canaveral  for ministry purposes.

His next trip will be towards the end of December so please send us any you can between now and Christmas!
