Prayer Quilts

Prayer Quilt DSC_0123When First Bethel’s quilters gather to work on a project, they are doing more than stitching fabric together—they are participating in a powerful prayer ministry.

Quilts are made for those in the congregation and beyond who are in special need of prayer. Before the quilts are delivered, they are consecrated in worship and members of the congregation tie knots on strings attached to the quilts.  Each knot represents a prayer.

Those who receive the quilts know they are not just being covered by its warmth—they are also being surrounded by the prayers of a loving community of faith.
