PRAYER QUILT MINISTRY
Meets 2nd Sat of each month, starting Feb 13, 2021
10am – 2pm • Preston Place #280
What is a PRAYER QUILT MINISTRY?
It is a group that meets to sew special quilts. Prayer quilts combine the gift of prayer with the gift of a quilt. After the quilt is completed, yarn pieces are sewn into the quilt. The quilt is displayed on a Sunday in the foyer, and church members are invited to visit the quilt, say a silent prayer, and tie a knot representing their prayer. The quilts are given to those that are suffering from a serious illness, grief, or other crisis.
