Bags of Love is a Joint Ministry of the Laconia and Concord Seventh-day Adventist Churches.
Central NH Chapter of Bags of Love meets monthly at the Laconia Seventh-day Adventist Church to work on homemade quilts and duffle bags for children who are removed from their homes by the Department of Child, Youth and Family Services due to abuse, neglect or drugs. These Bags of Love are filled with a quilt, personal care items, toys and stuffed animals - all age and gender specific. Each bag is delivered with the hope of easing a very difficult time for that child, and giving them something that permanently belongs to them.
During our meetings, we learn new quilting patterns and techniques. We also have fun and fellowship and forged a bond with each women, girl and man that attends/contributes. We feel blessed to have a ministry using the gifts the Lord has given us to bless these innocent children who are traumatized through no fault of their own.
