Mosaic Prayer Square

An interfaith outreach ministry that combines the gift of prayer with the gift of a hand-tied quilt.  The purpose of Prayer Squares is to promote prayers through the use of mosaic quilts. “It’s not about the quilt; it’s all about the prayers.”  Each knot represents a prayer. These Prayer Squares Quilts are “comforters”, a statement of faith, and a testimony to our belief in God and in the power of prayer.


Meetings: Weekly, Sunday 10:00am

Where:  Grace Church- Shepherd Room
