Homeless Mats Ministry

Posted on

Who are these amazing ladies in the picture above? They are just some of the selfless, attentive and compassionate women who are caring for those less fortunate, through our homeless mats ministry. These special ladies convene at Gloria Dei twice a month to crochet mats to provide a bed for a select homeless person to sleep on. Each mat uses at least 775 plastic grocery bags, and takes more than a month to complete from start to finish. It takes a team of people to cut every bag, crochet, tie and secure them into a completed piece. You have to see it to believe it! The care and time our servant ladies are putting into this ministry is incredible. They enjoy the fellowship of being together while they work, and they love making new friends as new volunteers join the group. Thank you to all who are LOVING AS SERVANTS in this ministry! If you want to know more about this, or would like to join in the fun, please email Jan Reister.
