PRAYER QUILT MINISTRY
Prayer quilts combine the gift of prayer with the gift of a quilt. Church members are invited to visit the quilt made by the ministry group, 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. Please JOIN or HELP SUPPORT THIS MINISTRY!
Meets 2nd Sat of each month
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.
HOW CAN I REQUEST A QUILT FOR SOMEONE?
Prestoncrest members can text the word QUILT to the same phone # we use for check-in every Sunday. Click the link it sends you and fill out the form. (If you prefer a paper copy, pick up a brochure any time at the Information Center in the foyer at Prestoncrest.)
