Prayer Quilt Ministry

QuiltsThe Prayer Squares Quilt Ministry is an interfaith outreach ministry that combines the gift of prayer with the gift of a hand-tied quilt. After the ladies make a quilt, a heavy thread is used to take stitches through the quilt layers. The ends are left free to be tied. The quilt is then displayed and is available for those at the end of service to tie a knot and pray for the recipient. Military Squares are also made for those serving our country. The quilters meet each week and have made over 150 quilts.

 

American Baptist Women

American Baptist Women play a large part in the ministry at First Baptist Lydia Cr 5 croppedChurch. The purpose of ABW is to unite women in a commitment to the mission of His church, through worshiping, working, and witnessing in the home, community, nation, and the world. Our local ABW organization meet each month for devotions, workshops, and fellowship.
