Connecting while Serving

Quilting

quilters

Quilting is a great way to get involved if you like to work with your hands and you enjoy the camaraderie of other women. No experience is necessary. There are a variety of tasks and responsibilities to be shared. Volunteers are needed to assemble and tie quilts as well as cutting, sorting, and counting quilt squares. Quilts are distributed to LifeHaven as a gift to the moms who complete the program. Each year more than 100 quilts are given to Global Health Ministries for distribution to ELCA Mission hospitals throughout the world. Other recipients include Bible camps, mission visitors, refugees and needy families.
