While the time of each First Touch Ministry meeting is from 10 AM-5 PM, you are welcome to join us for as long as you are able to each meeting day. Can't stay past 2 PM? That's okay! 

What is "First Touch"?

First Touch is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Lakewood & friends! It's made up of people who enjoy crocheting, knitting, & sewing.  

Throughout the year, the group will choose to make & donate items to various organizations like CareNet, local hospitals, Tacoma Rescue Mission, etc to share the love of Jesus with others.

First Touch also partners with "Quilts of Valor," an organization that makes & presents Veterans with a patriotic-themed lap quilt to thank them for their service & remind them that they are noticed & cared for. The February First Touch meeting is set aside as "Quilt of Valor" day, & quilt blocks are made for a special quilt to be given to a Quilt of Valor recipient in the future.

How Can I Get Involved?

Come to a First Touch Ministry meeting! If you have a project you are currently working on, bring it with you. (We're sorry, sewing machines are not provided - you'll need to bring your own from home.) Don't have a project right now? That's okay! Come & see what items might be needed for some of the mission projects. And jump in! It's a great way to meet new people, make new friends & be creative!
