Quilt and Crochet Ministry
JOY (Just Older Youth)
Quilters meet each 4th Thursday at 10:00 AM in the church HUB.
What is a Prayer Quilt?
A prayer quilt is a quilt that is made with love and tied with prayers. A heavy thread is used to take stitches through the quilt layers, and the ends are left free to be tied with a square knot. As each knot is tied, a silent prayer is offered for someone in special need—someone who has asked us to pray for them. The quilt is then given to that person.
Prayer is symbolically tied into each quilt. Prayer quilts are a statement of faith and testimony to our belief in God and in the power of prayer.
Who receives a Prayer Quilt?
Any person in physical, emotional, or spiritual crisis who feels like they can benefit from being "covered in prayer".
Prayer quilts have been made for sick babies, for cancer patients, for adults and children facing surgery or difficult family situations – for many reasons, but each for someone in special need of the healing power of prayer.
Crochet Ministry provides Crocheted Prayer Shawls for members in Crises.
