Loving Fingers Quilters
Tuesdays, 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
The Loving Fingers Quilters make quilts for Escanaba and Marquette Hospice and anyone we know who would find a little comfort in a quilt.  Our group is young and old, sewers and non-sewers.  Please join us for a day, a morning or an afternoon of good friends.

Pasty Making
Monthly from October to May
Join the fun as we make and roll dough, cut potatoes & onions, assemble and cook the pasties and package them for pickup. On Thursday morning we prepare the dough and filling, then assemble and cook the pasties Friday morning for noon delivery.  More than 500 pasties are made per month at Central.  Call the church office at 786-0643 to order.  To help, check the church schedule for the dates.
