What is a Prayer Quilt?
A Prayer Quilt is a lap-sized cover, hand-tied with square knots. As each knot is tied, a prayer is offered for the person to received the quilt. When fully tied, the quilt is given as a gift of love and prayer.
A Prayer Quilt is a statement of our faith in God and our belief in His power to comfort, strengthen and heal.
Who may receive a Prayer Quilt?
Anyone who is facing a special need for prayer, such as surgery, treatment, or a crisis illness may receive a quilt when they are sponsored by someone attending Redding Christian Fellowship.
A Sponsor must:
- ask the recipient for permission.
- request the quilt from the team
- deliver the competed quilt to the recipient.
To become a sponsor please contact:
Church Office (530) 222-3425
Who makes the Prayer Quilts?
Prayer Quilts are created by individuals who are committed to sharing the burden of others through prayer and the giving of hand-tied quilts.
The Prayer Quilts team meets weekly:
To work on quilts in progress.
To receive quilting instruction.
For encouragement, fellowship and prayer.
Is This Ministry For You?
You don’t need to be a quilter or even a sewer. This is a team effort.
Our Motto Is:
It’s not about the quilt…
It’s all about the Prayers.
