In 2007 Dodie Busbee and Dee Denmark started our sewing ministry at Macedonia Baptist Church. What is ironic is that neither of these ladies knew anything about sewing! Since that time this ministry has grown to 20-30 members, and many of them are from other churches in Jacksonville.
This ministry makes prayer blankets, bibs, catheter bag covers, and pillows. Every item that is made contains a label with the Bible verse: “Give all your worries and cares to God, for He cares about you” 1 Peter 5:7. Many of the items are for critically ill patients of North Florida Community Hospice and UF Health Hospital. The sewing items are for anyone who has a friend or loved one in the hospital or home recovering from an illness or surgery.
The sewing ministry meets on the 2nd Monday of each month from 2-7pm, and 2-5pm on the 4th Monday of each month. Everyone is invited to join us in this ministry: women or men, young or old. We need volunteers who can cut material, knot, iron, organize items, and help in the kitchen.
Come join us! Your volunteering will help those in need know that someone else cares about them and most importantly that God loves them! For more information you can contact Dee Denmark at email address
