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.  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.   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                

Prayer Quilt News

 
Our Prayer Quilt Group has now sent seven (7) boxes of fabric to three different Navajo projects in Arizona and Colorado.  We are also working on items for our annual sale which will be held on October 16,2022 in Room 1 & 2.
 
We are so appreciative of the congregation’s support of this event, as well as stopping to say a prayer and tie a knot on our Prayer Quilts.
 
Newcomers who are interested in quilting, knitting or sewing are always welcome to join us on Monday at 10am in Room 1 & 2.
