Everyone needs help sometime, and we all need some hope. Here at Inland Hills Church, we believe that the Church is the hope of the world, and we want to provide help and hope to you as you journey through life. Sometimes life hurts. And we’ve found that we don’t get to miss out on the pains of life just because we go to church. That’s why Care Ministry is here to help. Have questions about Care Groups? Contact Sharon Quezada.

Sew Blessed Prayer Quilters +
2nd & 4th Monday of each month  |  3:00-9:00pm  |  Bldg B, Rm 101/102

This ministry features a group of volunteers who create special quilts for people in critical need of prayer. Thread is used to take stitches through the quilt layers and the ends are left free to be tied in a knot. As each knot is tied, a prayer is offered for someone in need; then, the quilt is given to that person. Each week, there are prayer quilts awaiting your prayers at the Sew Blessed table following Sunday services. Please stop by the tables so that we are able to quickly get quilts to their recipients.

If you enjoy quilting or sewing, wish to learn, or want to help in other ways, volunteers are encouraged to join us in this ministry.
If you are interested in our next session or have questions, contact Sew Blessed Quilters.

Led by women who themselves suffer from chronic pain, this support group gathers to share relevant info, practical help, and tangible hope that God will bring blessing out of ailments.

  • I underestimated the impact of the cancer support group. Talking about your cancer journey is very therapeutic. I feel so much more comfortable now talking with others about my disease whereas before I didn’t want anyone to know about my cancer. This group has really had a positive impact on my life.

    Cancer Support
  • I love the fellowship and the honesty that we share with each other and how we use the Word and life application to interpret the 12 steps.

    Recovery IHC
  • The Circles of Hope family has lifted my spirits in more ways than I can ever fully express. If it were not for YOUR continued support, I really do not know where my family would be today. Thank you, thank you, thank you – you truly are LIGHT and SALT.
