Prayers and Squares Quilt Ministry

Saying a prayer and tying a knot on a Prayers and Squares quilt

If you like to cut, iron, or sew, this group is for you. Prayers and Squares is a national interfaith group that fosters prayer-quilt ministry. The quilts our group makes go to people in our congregation recovering from health concerns and to babies who are being baptized. They have also been sent on mission trips to give to families whose homes are repaired by the mission team. After blessing in the worship service, the quilts are tied by the congregation at the coffee hour, one prayer for each tie.

We have all-day workdays 3 or 4 times a year. Between the workdays, kits are available for anyone wishing to work on a quilt top.

Call the church office for information on the next meeting.
