The definition of a lap robe is:
a covering for the legs, lap, and feet especially of a passenger in a car or carriage.
Well, our lap robes don't make it to the car or carriage to use as a cover, but they do provide warmth and comfort that is difficult to put into words. Have you ever sat in a chair in the evening and you become chilled? You get up, grab an afghan, sit back down and cover your legs, which makes you feel warm, secure and safe. Now imagine being away from home, someone just helped you get out of bed and placed you in a wheel chair/chair. They grab a lap robe and place it on your lap, and you feel good, secure and safe knowing that this lap robe was made by people from your church. They thought enough of you, they cared, and remembered you by providing this lap robe for you as a reminder that "Your are not forgotten, we remember and care about you." That gives you an idea of what the Monday evening knitting/crocheting group does week after week. A few gather at church and some of you sit in the comfort of your home and knit/crochet not knowing who will benefit from your act of kindness.
In 2012, 20 lap robes were blessed at the October Women's Board Meeting. The robes were then bagged in colorful gift bags with a note attached "Made and prayed for by members of Faith Lutheran Church." It also had a card that read: "You are special to God. May this prayer shawl/laprobe keep you warm, keep you close to His heart, and at peace with yourself." The laprobes were given to the Whitelaw Homemakers who added a few other items to the bag and then given to the veterans that live in eight different facilities in Manitowoc County.
Material needed are 1 1/2 yards of baby appropriate material per side and crib sized batting. Please place material in the stewardship cabinet across from the church office. Thank you!
This project was started in 2000 by a long time FLCW member at her own expense. She purchased material and crafted these quilts to be given to each infant baptized. Understanding the importance and expense of this ministry, the FLCW reimbursed her and has now budgeted for this project.
