May Ministry Focus: Quilting
One of the ways that First Lutheran shares God’s Love with the world is through the quilt ministry. It begins with donations of fabric and funds. Dedicated volunteers sew at home turning the donated fabric into multi-colored quilt tops and backs. The donated funds are used to pur-chase batting and other supplies. Once a month, starting at about 9:00 a.m. the church comes alive with the sound of scissors snipping, sewing machines humming and lively conversation. This is when quilt tops, batting and backs are sandwiched together, lovingly tied, then pinned for final sewing at church or at home. Once a year completed quilts are delivered to Lutheran World Relief. From there the quilts are sent somewhere in the world where there are people in need of a warm cover and a reminder of God’s love.
If you are interested in quilting or curious to see how the quilts are made, stop by the church when the quilters are there (fourth Tuesday of each month) and check it out. The quilters would love to show you what they are working on and tell you about the quilts and what they are used for.
Tied in Faith. Sent in Hope. Wrapped in Love.
