Mat Ministry

A ministry for those in need of sleeping mats

 

This ministry uses upcycled plastic bags to make plarn (plastic yarn) in order to produce sleeping mats for the homeless and others in need. For several years, one of our adult Sunday School classes has been involved in crocheting mats and distributing them locally. Recently we have expanded this ministry to include mats which are woven on simple looms and can be completed in a few hours. This has given us an opportunity to involve our multi-generational congregation in gathering plastic bags, preparation of the bags, making plarn, and weaving. Our youth were able to distribute completed mats during their 2016 Mission Trip to Metropolitan Ministries in Tampa, FL.
