The Christian Quilters Guild meets on the third Monday of each month in Room 155 at 9:30 A.M. to share samples of their work and ideas about quilting. The focus of this ministry is to make baby quilts for children born at risk for HIV, AIDS, drug and alcohol withdrawal symptoms, and other health risks. During their 8 year association with the ABC quilt project, over 400 quilts were donated to area hospitals. They currently donate quilts to the Union County Rainbow Clinic and school bags to the Church World Services Festival of Sharing. Each quilt has been made with love and dedicated during a church service. Each quilt is sent with prayer and a desire that the child will become healthy.
Additional information may be found in the Information Centers of the Burnside Family Life Center and the Sanctuary; or call the church office at 937-642-4712.
Our Cuba team took one of the quilts made by the Christian Quilters to Pastor Edgani in November. Pastor Edgani, who is pastor of the congregation in Barbosa, Cuba where we are helping them build a church, had just learned that she was expecting. Tears of joy accompanied the presentation of the quilt! In the picture, Pastor Aaron and Greg Williams can be seen presenting the quilt to Pastor Edgani and her husband.
