Prayer Quilt Ministry
3rd Thursday of each Month
10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. & 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
New World’s Prayer Quilt Ministry strives to bring comfort to persons facing life’s challenges—weddings, births, illness, death—through the gift of a tied quilt.
Members of the congregation “nominate” persons for quilts, and the Prayer Quilt Committee makes the quilts, personalizing each with a label showing the recipient’s name. A quilt is approximately 40”x50”; the quilt layers are held together with lengths of yarn. As the congregation ties these lengths of yarn into knots on Sunday morning, they say a prayer for the quilt recipient.
Our prayer quilts are about the fabric of prayer and are symbolic of the prayer outreach of New World United Methodist Church. The quilts are meant to be positive, hopeful, and comforting.
The Prayer Quilt Ministry meets the third Monday of each month in the parlor. Meeting times are 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
