We are blessed with a vibrant prayer quilt ministry in our little church. This dedicated group of women and men gather regularly to create prayer quilts for people who are suffering. This group includes expert quilters, new quilters, and even non-quilters! Some cut fabric, some sew by machine, some do hand work, and some offer ideas for patterns and colors.
When a quilt is ready to be dedicated and ties have been added, the quilt is then passed among the PCPC congregation during a Sunday service. During this service, each person in the congregation ties a knot in a set of ties and prays for the person to whom the quilt will be given. These quilts have blessed many people over the past few years. They are physical reminders of the comfort of God’s presence and the warmth of the Church’s love and prayers. Since the start of the ministry in 2009, over 250 quilts have been made and dedicated.
Join the quilters on Mondays from 9:30am to 3:00pm. Anyone is welcome to be part of this special ministry, whether you are an expert quilter or have never quilted before.
"I can’t tell you how very much I appreciate the beautiful prayer quilt you made for me during my recent hospitalization. It has brought comfort during my recovery through its warmth and beauty and through the symbolism it brings of your thoughts and prayers. I love the pastel colors and pretty patterns, and I have spent many hours gazing admiringly at them when I was too sick to do anything else. My new quilt was also a comfort to my caregivers, my family and my friends who were touched by your thoughtfulness. You should know that every quilt you make is a blessing and an inspiration to everyone who sees it. I am thankful to each and every one of you."
"Several days ago I received one of your most beautiful prayers quilts. It is just indescribable. Dori told me my quilt was created by a 77 year old saint from your group. I can’t believe she’s only been quilting 3 years. I believe purple is my ultimate favorite color. I just love my quilt. Thank you. I appreciate all the prayers your congregation said on my behalf. My hip is getting better daily. This is a very charitable act of love you ladies perform and I thank you from my heart."
"I would like to thank you all for the beautiful prayer blanket. When I opened it and read what it meant, nothing ever would of meant more to me. All the hard work and especially the prayers I know will comfort me and help heal me. Nothing will cure me but prayers and faith, and I do believe God is listening to all of us. I am fighting this and with God’s help I will beat this. Thank you again and I love you all."
