The Seventh Annual Jail Ministry Quilt Auction and Pie Sale
was held on Saturday, November 2, 2013
at Bethel Lutheran Church, Madison.
106 quilt items were on display!
40 pies scented the air!
The amazing quilt items were donated from 20 quilting groups
and 28 individual quilters representing over 10 different churches.
The pies were donated from 13 different groups and individuals.
We appreciate the donor support shown to Chaplain John Mix and Chaplain Julia Weaver
and their ministry carried out in the Dane County Jail.
The generous sharing of time and considerable talents make a difference
in this Ministry of Presence sponsored by the Madison Area Lutheran Council.
Amy Carlson, NBC-15 Weekend Live Co-Anchor,
was the our guest auctioneer for the day and was excellent in her role.
Sheriff Dave Mahoney and Lieutenant Jeff Blakely of the Dane County Sheriff's Department
attended to show their support. In addition, Sheriff Mahoney shared his appreciation for the
ministry carried out by Chaplain John Mix and Chaplain Julia Weaver,
not only to inmates and their families, but to the Sheriff's Department staff as well.
Just a reminder that cash donations are still being accepted for the auction.
Here are some of the quilts that were featured at the 2013 show.
The Quilt Auction was started to achieve three goals:
1. To raise funds for MALC Jail Chaplaincy Program
2. To educate people about the Jail Chaplaincy Program
3. To involve area churches
