Quilt Ministry

Bethlehem Quilters meet year-round the first Tuesday of every month at 9 a.m. to assemble and tie quilts. Last year over 150 quilts were made by this handful of women who met to do the service work of making quilts for distribution to the Salvation Army, the Marie Sandvik Center in Minneapolis and through Lutheran World Relief. Additionally, receiving-blanket size quilts were given last year to the Bethlehem Child Care Center. Word is, "If you can tie your shoe you can help tie quilts". Bring a bag lunch and drop in some Tuesday morning for productive work and a good time of fellowship.
