Local Christian quilters help first responders spread warmth

“God is so good” ministry quilt collection

On May third, members of the Lincoln City Church of the Nazarene donated 42 handmade quilts to first responders of the Lincoln City Police and North Lincoln Fire and Rescue.

According to Nazarene church pastor Kelli Westmark, “These quilts are gifts to the police and fire departments to comfort kids in time of crisis.”
42 handmade quilts were handed over.  The quilts were made by a Nazarene church ministry of 10-12 quilters known as “God is Sew Good.”  Said one ministry member, “We are always looking for more quilters, no experience necessary!”

Officers Folmar and Winn accepted the quilts on behalf of the police department saying, “The kids love the quilts.  They are comforting.  The quilts are sometimes given out at domestic disputes that require involved children to come into the police station. Many times kids are in the station all day.  Or they are given to the kids at auto accidents who are pretty shaken up. The quilts are calming for them.”

We are truly grateful for your thoughtfulness and generosity.”
