Quilted Finger Prayer Labyrinths

fingerlabyrinth2

United Methodist Women are actively preparing for the church’s 2016 General Conference in Portland, Oregon, May 10-20, 2016.  As in previous General Conference meetings, United Methodist Women will have an active role in the General Conference prayer ministry.  One prayer ministry activity planned is to offer quilted finger prayer labyrinths for delegates and guests. 

We are seeking UMW members that enjoy quilting to assist us by making the finger labyrinths.  Would you like to help by volunteering to quilt finger prayer labyrinth squares for the delegates and guests?  We need 2,000 and the variety of labyrinths made by women from all over the country will bless the recipients and lend to the support and outreach we hope to extend.  Each labyrinth will be tagged with a card identifying that the labyrinth is “handmade with love and prayer by United Methodist Women”.

The labyrinths are 8″ square and machine quilted.  Instructions and pattern are available by emailing cathy@bozemanumc.org or contacting Jen in the BUMC office.  Please email GCprayer@unitedmethodistwomen.org  with an estimate of how many you might be able to make and to receive further instructions for shipping the completed labyrinths by the deadline.  

Deadline for submission of labyrinths is January 15, 2016.  If there are questions, email Becky Dodson Louder at GCprayer@unitedmethodistwomen.org
