The Prayer Quilt Ministry began in 2008. Prayers are said during the course of quilt construction.
The quilts have many loose threads or ties purposely sewn into them so that the congregation members can say individual prayers while tying the threads into square knots.
Since February 2011, more than 130 quilts have been delivered to individuals coping with illness or loss, or on a life journey where God’s comfort was especially needed.
Some quilts stay within our church families; others have been sent to Pennsylvania, New York, and as far away as California. When you want to help a person in need, the simple act of tying a prayer knot can be a humbling experience.
Many members have seen these beautiful and meaningful quilts displayed in Kirk Hall and have tied knots and added prayers. But not too many people have witnessed what happens when one of the quilts is presented to an unsuspecting person. It is an amazing and emotional event that proves that this prayer quilt ministry is extremely valuable in fulfilling our mission of sharing God’s love.
