Lutheran World Relief Projects
Mission Quilters meet every Wednesday morning to cut, stitch, pin, sew, iron, and knot as we put together 60” by 80” quilts. Quilts are sent across the globe to areas where people are refugees or suffering the effects of violence or natural disasters. In addition to being a bed cover, they can be turned into a baby carrier, a room divider, a place to display items in the market, a sack for carrying goods, a sunshade, or a shawl. In the past year our quilters completed 132 quilts! We are always looking for additional help—young or old, male or female—come and join us any Wednesday mornings at 9:30am in the second floor classrooms!
Our members bring items to the church throughout the year for kits. The kits are assembled in time for the in-gathering the first Sunday in October.
In 2020 we completed 76 School kits, 32 Baby kits, 92 Quilts, 13 Fabric Kits, and 40 Health kits!
Founded by Lutherans in the United States at the end of World War II, grounded in Lutheran theology and building on decades of experience, Lutheran World Relief tackles global poverty by helping people adapt to the challenges that threaten their livelihoods and well-being.

For generations, we have provided resources and training for struggling small-scale farmers in order to give them a chance to change their circumstances. But solving hunger and poverty on a global scale requires focus on sound, community-based work aligned with a long-term commitment to achieving self-reliance.
