April 19, 2016 – Old Bridge, NJ – Doris Haug, representing the Piecemaker Quilters of Colts Neck Reformed Church, presented a beautiful, handmade quilt to Reformed Church Home during a resident council meeting held at the home on April 12. Executive Director Kate Shepard accepted the masterpiece on behalf of the residents and staff.
The quilt is made up of many 4×4 squares that were completed by congregants of several Reformed Churches in New Jersey. Reformed Church Home’s mission statement is embroidered in the center of the quilt as a constant reminder of this community’s dedication to compassionate care in a spiritual environment.
“Reformed Church Home would like to sincerely thank all who were involved in creating this magnificent quilt,” said Shepard. “It will be a lovely addition to the Home, and we will hang it in our lobby as a beautiful piece for visitors to admire. It is a symbol of the love and support that area Reformed Churches have for the residents of Reformed Church Home.”
The quilting project has been underway since fall of 2015. Haug, a Reformed Church Home board member, led the project and enlisted the help of many churches in the community to design and sew quilt squares.
The participating churches were: Old Brick Reformed Church, Marlboro; Grace Reformed Church, Edison; the First Reformed Church of Hawthorne; Three Bridges Reformed Church; Freehold Reformed Church; Saddle River Reformed Church; the First Reformed Church, Pompton Plains; Pompton Reformed Church, Pompton Lakes; New Brunswick Second Reformed Church; Trinity Reformed Church, Plainfield; Monocacy Valley Church, Ijamsville, MD; Ocean Community Church, Manahawkin; and Colts Neck Reformed Church.
