The Wrapped in Love sewing group made baby quilts for the neo-natal unit at Halifax Health Center (see pictures below) and full size bed quilts were made for the hospice unit at Florida Hospital. We are so appreciative of the financial, prayer support and encouragement we receive from our church family as we seek to minister to our community.

Quilts added a decorative touch to our sanctuary recently. They were stacked on a table near the chancel and draped across the pews, their brilliant colors complemented by the muted tones of the sun shining through stained glass windows. The quilts were blessed during worship before being given this week to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Halifax Medical Center for infants being cared for there. There were larger quilts as well, and they will be given to hospice. The quilts were made by Wrapped in Love, whose participants gather weekly at the church to sew and enjoy each other's company.
We continue to meet weekly on Wednesdays at 10:00 a.m. Please call the Church Office (386-253-4581) for more information.
Former Wrapped in Love convener Susan Clayton entered our church’s signature quilt that adorns the front of the Sanctuary week by week and the newer funeral pall in a juried show called “Sacred Threads,” a biennial exhibition providing a safe venue for quilters who see their work as a connection to the sacred and/or as an expression of their spiritual journey.
Both pieces were accepted for the exhibition, which took place July 10-28, 2013, at the Floris United Methodist Church in Herndon, VA (suburban Washington, DC).
Both pieces were created from a vast variety of fabric donated by members of the congregation. The funeral pall was pieced together by Wrapped in Love participants gathering each Wednesday morning at the church, prior to Susan Clayton undertaking the quilting.
A group of FPC members travelled together to see the Sacred Threads exhibit.
