United City Church's Comfort Blankets, Prayer Shawls, and Homeless Mats Ministries are dedicated to providing warmth, comfort, and love to individuals and families facing challenging circumstances.

Why Choose United City Church?

At United City Church, we believe in the power of faith, compassion, and unity. Our ministries are guided by the principles of love, empathy, and a genuine desire to help others. When you choose to support our Comfort Blankets, Prayer Shawls, and Homeless Mats Ministries, you are joining a community of like-minded individuals who are committed to making a difference.

Comfort Blankets: Bringing Warmth and Comfort

Our Comfort Blankets ministry focuses on creating and distributing warm, cozy blankets to those who are in need of comfort and warmth. Whether it's a child battling illness, a survivor of a natural disaster, or someone experiencing homelessness, a comforting blanket can provide solace and a sense of security. We carefully craft these blankets with love and care, ensuring that each one carries a message of hope and compassion.

Prayer Shawls: Wrapping in Love and Support

Our Prayer Shawls ministry aims to provide tangible symbols of love and support through handmade shawls. These shawls are lovingly knitted or crocheted by members of our church community, who infuse each stitch with heartfelt prayers and positive intentions. When someone receives a Prayer Shawl, they feel wrapped in the warmth of God's love and the support of a caring community. These shawls serve as a physical reminder that they are not alone and that they are held in prayer.

Homeless Mats: Turning Waste into Comfort

Our Homeless Mats ministry addresses both the issue of homelessness and sustainable living. We repurpose plastic bags into sleeping mats for individuals experiencing homelessness. These mats provide a waterproof and insulated barrier between the cold ground and those in need, offering a glimmer of comfort and protection. In addition to helping those without shelter, this ministry also promotes environmental consciousness by reducing plastic waste and fostering creative solutions.
