For 11 years our Prayer Quilters have created and shared nearly 60 quilts per year, and have joyfully created more than 500 individual and unique Quilts. These quilts are prayerfully designed, constructed, hand quilted and presented for our congregation to add prayers and tie knots to signify their many prayers for the specific person and the individual needs of that person. There are no charges for the quilts. The one requirement in requesting a Prayer Quilt is that the person receiving the quilt needs to make a written or emailed request for themselves with their specific information about the person for whom the prayer request is made.
Many quilt recipients have requested quilts for different medical situations, while others have asked for quilts and prayers for more personal and relational needs. Our Quilters also offer separate Prayer Shawls for caregivers who request them.
The Prayer Quilt Ministry operates on donations and participation in the annual Show & Sell festival. The estimated material for each quilt is $50. If you would like to help fund one or more quilts please forward your donations to : Rock Spring UMC Quilt Ministry, P.O. Box 117, 3477 Peavine Road, Rock Spring, Georgia, 30739.
Our quilters look forward to preparing one for you or someone you know who would find this a blessing and encouragement.
