Quilting Ministry

 

 

 

An expression of love!

“Your unfailing love comforts me. Show me ways to share your love with those who need to be consoled.” Psalm 1, 19:76

What is the quilting ministry?

The quilting team crafts a lap quilt to be given to people (both church members and non-church members) who are experiencing challenges in their lives, usually critical health problems. The congregation finishes each quilt by saying prayers as they knot the yarn ties that secure the quilt layers. A focus on prayer for those in need is at the heart of this ministry. The hands that make and tie the quilt affirm their faith in God’s loving, comforting and healing powers. Those receiving a quilt are comforted that they are not alone—God is with them along with much love from our church family.

How can I be part of this ministry?

Pray for the quilt recipients.
Join the Quilting Team Wednesdays, 3:00 – 5:30 pm, for any amount of time, in the SYC Room in the Discovery Zone.
Make a donation:

  • Fabric – 100% cotton, preferred (1 1/8 yd. minimum)
  • Cotton batting for quilts
  • Money for supplies not donated – (one quilt is approx. $45)

Direct the congregation to tie knots after a worship service.

How do I request a quilt?

Anyone can request prayers, and a quilt for themselves or on behalf of another.  There is no charge for the quilt, but there is a responsibility to be actively involved in prayer.  When a “sponsor” requests a quilt, they need to talk with the recipient about their prayer needs and confirm that they will accept the gift of prayer in the form of a quilt.  The sponsor must also be active in the praying process, tying effort of the congregation, and delivering the finished quilt.

To request a quilt, contact the church office at 715-344-3557.
