Subject: Help needed with Goodie Bag Ideas for Church
Hi ladies, I truly need help, I found the jelly bean prayer and the rock prayer for our goodie bags. We are making 500 goodie bags for our church and of course some of the ladies are really tight and do not want to spend money, so we need to come up with ideas which a hand full of ladies can do on a shoestring. Like we have prayer doh, I am donating the beads and making angels, which I also make angel earrings and necklaces and sell them. So any inexpensive ideas you have I would love to know of them, as well as perhaps a poem to go with it. You are all so talented and great, I feel Like I have some sisters because I only had brothers.

How about a small cross & pocket out of plastic canvas
? There is a poem to go with it.

hi kathy, have you looked at www.christianfreebies.com
they have free printable bookmarks and several other things you might could use. also could make a tea bag packet, the tea is fairly cheap at sams club if you have one in your area, also can find flavored teas at the dollar stores, or print a hot choc packet.
hugs and blessings

You might find more ideas in the archives - just type Christian in the search box. I'm showing a link for the Christian Christmas Crafts - there was another great idea I think in the middle post that is not necessarily Christmas. Using the search you'll also find a Christian Key Poem, Christian Penny Poem, Christian sayings, several survival kits, poems for magnets...
