2020 Friend-Raiser

Will Your Partner With Our Ministry?

July 2020

The words from the Bible in the book of Esther “for such a time as this” take on personal meaning at Art 2 Heart as we all live and work in these extraordinary times. With the rise of the pandemic and the shuttering of many retail stores, God quickly inspired our creative volunteers to continue and actually expand His Art 2 Heart ministry in new ways -- and now, more than ever, we need your support.

Art 2 Heart operates an amazing retail shop, filled with handmade products from local and global artists, to fund our ministry. The shop was closed for 2 months  but has now reopened, in compliance with the MN mandate. 

Here's what we've been doing: 

  • Art 2 Heart's prayer and blessing ministry -- HEartReach -- prays for and sends cards & creative gifts to people whose names are submitted to us via email or online to bless and assure them that God is with them, even during such a time as this.
  • During the pandemic, we started designing and making scripture-based bookmarks, cards, and magnets, along with small ceramic hearts and other encouraging items that we have used to bless hundreds of people who desperately need encouragement during these difficult times. Recipients have included elderly shut-ins at senior homes, health care workers, National Guard members, and a church on the corner of 38th and Chicago in Minneapolis, which is giving them to the brokenhearted who are searching for healing and reconciliation during such a time as this.
  • We are currently finishing up another 1,000 handmade cards and bookmarks that will be given to frontline nurses and other health care workers, and we have ordered supplies to bless literally thousands more right here in our community this fall.

  • In addition, our sewing team has made more than 1,200 masks, all donated to the health care professionals, and they just keep sewing!

There’s so much going on at Art 2 Heart and it is all being done by faithful volunteers who donate their time and talents so that all of our net proceeds can be invested in Ministry Partners and Blessing Outreaches operating on the front lines locally and all over the world:

  • protecting the orphans,
  • rescuing those trapped in human trafficking,
  • building safe homes for the most vulnerable,
  • providing food and resources for those in developing countries that have been hit hard by the pandemic, and bringing encouragement and hope to our own hurting city of Minneapolis.

Can you come alongside us as we continue with the work God asks us to do for such a time as this? We sincerely thank you for your past support and ask that you join with us now to carry forward the ministry of Art 2 Heart.
