Since its founding in 1963, members of the Needlepoint Ministry have completed many pieces of needlework that have added greatly to the beauty of St. Paul’s.
The first project was the cushions for the chapel (Chapel of Incarnation). Other completed projects were the kneeling cushions at the altar rail, the kneeling cushions of the first four rows of the church depicting scenes from the Old and New Testaments.
Beginning in the 1980’s and continuing today various church members have commissioned kneelers in memory of a family member or members.
This is a continuing project. Contact Mandy Lawton (517-482-4316) for additional information.
Prayer Quilt Ministry
Making Prayer Quilts is a ministry of servant-hood that expresses caring for God’s people, especially when His people are in need of support. Quilts are blessed, prayed over and sometimes knots are tied as prayers are offered for the recipient who may be ill, facing surgery, or experiencing grief. St. Paul’s members and friends may request a prayer quilt.
- The Prayers & Squares motto is: “It’s not about the quilt, it’s about the prayers.”
- The purpose of the ministry is to promote an active prayer life among the participants, not just make and give away quilts. The ministry strives to involve as many people as possible in its prayer efforts.
- 3 The recipient must consent to the receipt of the gift of a prayer quilt and state what they wish to have prayers for. They also need to give permission for what information about his/her situation may be shared with others.
- 4 Prayer quilts are gifts of love and prayer that cannot be bought or sold.
Volunteers are needed to launder, iron and organize fabric; plan and select fabrics for quilts; cut fabric; sew pieced tops; layer quilts; machine quilt the quilt; and bind quilts. Donation of 100% cotton fabric, (especially 2 yard pieces); thread, and contributions of time, talent, and treasure are needed.
