Prayers & Squares
Did you know that Quilty Pleasures sponsors an outreach ministry named "Prayers & Squares" that meets the third MONDAY of every month starting at 6:30pm? Prayers & Squares is an interfaith outreach organization that combines the gift of tied quilt. Unlike many other groups that make quilts for charitable causes, the purpose of Prayers & Squares is not to make and distribute quilts, but to promote prayer through the use of quilts. Their motto is:
"It's not about the quilt; it's all about the prayers."
Join us on Monday's ...you will be truly blessed!!
WHAT'S THAT? BED AND BREAKFAST?? NO......
