My brothers' keeper sleeping bag ministry 

  • Our Tuesday Morning Quilter’s group is a gathering of faith and fellowship. Each Tuesday the team assembles downstairs in the church to layout the fabrics that will be used for the day.

    We are looking for volunteers to join us – no sewing experience is necessary – we are happy to teach those that are willing to help.

    We sew blankets and fabric pieces to create sleeping bags which are then donated to a shelter in Scranton. Inside each sleeping bag we include a shirt and pants; a quart size Ziploc bag with travel sized toiletries to include a toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, lotion and a comb.

    Our goal is to produce (4) bags each Tuesday. Our ministry was started 19 years ago and we have produced over 3556 sleeping bags since! Some of us start as early as 7:00am – but all are welcome to start at any time they can. We normally begin to leave between 10:00am and 11:00am.

    You are flexible to help out as little or as much as your schedule allows. We also knit and crochet hats and scarves that are included in the sleeping bags during the winter.

    We also donate hats, scarves and blankets to St. Joseph’s Center in Scranton, Pa. We are always seeking donations of items to go into the toiletry bags, quart sized Ziploc bags, sheets, comforters, pieces of fabric to make the bags; men’s ties to create the straps for the sleeping bag; fresh new socks, tee shirts, sweatpants to include with the bag.

    Please leave items in the Church basement. As soon as you enter the basement, our storage room door is on the right, you may leave items there for us to use on Tuesday mornings.

    We look forward to having you join us for fellowship and helping others. If you have questions you are welcome to contact Linda Highhouse at 226-2733 for more information.
