Prayer Quilt Ministry

“Inspired Hands”

 

The purpose of this ministry is to promote prayer through the use of quilts.  These quilts are made as a gift of love for someone in special need of prayer.

 

LCPC joined the Prayers and Squares Prayer Quilt Ministry in December of 2005 and began making quilts in January of 2006.  As of December 2016 the PQM has dedicated a total of 512 handmade prayer quilts!.  This is remarkable considering the small number of quilters we have and the size of our congregation.  We are always looking for quilters, knitters/crocheter or anyone who wants to help.  We meet on Mondays from 10:00 AM to noon-ish in Rooms 1 & 2.
 
The ministry continues to support several outreach programs through assisting the Military Outreach Ministries (M.O.M.) by sewing, knitting, and crocheting baby items for expectant mothers of the junior enlisted personnel.  We donate a variety of items that have been made to M.O.M. on a monthly basis.  We make baby layette sets (flannel receiving blankets, burp cloths, and bibs) for the M.O.M. office on a quarterly basis.

In addition to the baby shower items for San Diego M.O.M. the PQM have also taken leftover fabric scraps to make dog and cat items from old pillowcases and then donate the handmade items to the local animal shelter.  

 

Throughout the year the PQM has worked (and had fun) being able to donate baskets for the “Friends of the Library”,  donated fabric to Girl Scout Troops #5306 and #5030 along with donations for Thanksgiving Food Baskets, and toys for the the M.O.M. Christmas Store held annually at the church.

 

Remember, the PQM is open to any church or community member who is interested in assisting the quilting group or the MOM baby showers. The members of PQM are proud to serve our Lord with our hands and hearts.  Prayer quilts are a beautiful reminder that love of friends and even strangers who care can bring profound Hope and Comfort in times of challenge
