PUMC Dedicates Quilts Made for Victims of Domestic Violence (11/9/14)

Posted by on Nov 9, 2014 in EventReport, Knitting Ministries, Mission: NJandCountry | 0 comments

The Scrappy Quilters is an outreach ministry of PUMC whose members use their sewing talents to reach people in need of a special touch.

During our worship services on Sunday November 9, the altar table (and even the piano!) were covered with quilts and afghans.  These were made by our Scrappy Quilters, and they will be donated to women who are victims of domestic  violence.

During the worship services we lifted up these un-named victims and prayed for them.  When they receive and use these quilts and afghans, we pray that they will sense that they are surrounded by God’s love even- through difficult circumstances.

Center for Family Services LogoThe quilts will be given to the Center for Family Services, for use in their  Services Empowering Rights of Victims (SERV) program. The Center for Family Services is headquartered in Camden,  and assists families across Southern New Jersey  in a variety of ways.

SERV provides emergency safe housing to female victims of domestic violence and their children while they develop plans to lead violence-free lives.
