Gary United Methodist Church in Wheaton wrapped this year's high school graduates with homemade afghans.

The Gary Knitters, volunteers at the church, started working on the afghans a year ago to have them ready in time for the high school graduate summer send-off.

 

The graduates also received a copy of Dr. Suess's "Oh, the Places You'll Go," signed with well wishes by members of the congregation.

The church at 224 N. Main St. offers a 9 a.m. Sunday worship in the sanctuary, complete with Kids' Church and nursery care, plus livestreaming and recorded worship at garychurch.org.

After the worship service, you can enjoy a coffee hour called "Special Blend."

Starting Sept. 11, Gary Church will also offer a new session of Sunday school for all ages. Gary Church has vibrant music, kids, youth and adult ministries, plus opportunities for local, national and global missions.
