Quilting at Paradise UCC
COVID-19 has activated our quilters. If we can’t welcome people to services or help on missions trips…what can we do? People need masks.
We have been busy making masks. The Quilters, aka Mask Factory have sent 190 masks to Crossroads Children’s Home in Ft Wayne Indiana, 40 to Aultman Hospital, and give masks to members and non-members alike.

We hung them on our front church railing and posted on Facebook, “Free Masks.” Tons of response. We would hang 20 and a few hours later, gone! We started delivering them as well. All as an Act of Kindness. By estimates we are approaching 600 masks in 6 weeks!

What is Camp 2.0?
Camp 2.0 is a place where we can gather during this extraordinary time keeping each other and our families safe while still being together to support one another in our journey of Christian Faith. During this time of physical distancing, we must find ways to be socially, emotionally, and spiritually close. Although it will not be the same as being together at Templed Hills Camp, we believe we can provide some positive Christian camp community connections and growth in this way.
