Soup and Sew

Paoli Mennonite Fellowship members hand-tie a comforter for disaster victims.

PAOLI — The past two Wednesdays, Paoli Mennonite Fellowship hosted a “Soup and Sew” gathering from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. to knot 15 comforters for disaster relief around the world.

The program supports a Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) effort to gather 45,000 comforters from US and Canada churches to ship to global neighbors suffering from disaster and war—to places like Syria, Turkey, and Ukraine.

MCC is a relief, service, and peace agency representing 15 Mennonite, Brethren in Christ, and Amish groups in North America. The local fellowship worked together and then shared a simple lunch of soup and bread.
