Mission Statement


Threads of Love is a sewing ministry meeting the needs of tiny premature infants and newborns who die due to stillbirth, miscarriage or infant death. The ministry is about healing and binding hearts together of parents at a time of uncertainty about their baby's health or when they lose an infant. Our mission is to show parents the love of Christ at a time when their personal pain is hard to endure and let them know that God is faithful.

Description


Threads of Love, through the effort and support of many participants in chapters across the country, provides clothing, blankets and other handmade articles for tiny premature and sick infants. We desire to show God's love to the parents and loved ones of these babies in their time of uncertainty. Perhaps those who are experiencing incomprehensible pain may know a peace and serenity that extends beyond the situation. We want to simply be there to bring the unsaid message of God's presence and His infinite love and compassion. When a parent is faced with the death of an infant through miscarriage, infant death or stillbirth, we reach out to them with a packet showing God's love through our sewing skills, silently saying, "You are loved." At this time, a packet is used containing a bonnet, dress, blanket and a prayer for healing of a broken heart. All items are made and donated by ladies who are part of the Threads of Love ministry.
