“What I make with my hands, I give of my heart.”

Strongsville United Methodist Church is set to host Flat Rock Homes 2015 Biennial Quilt Auction on Sunday, October 4. The Quilt Auction will be comprised of two parts: a Silent Auction, and a Live Auction.

The Live Auction Quilt Preview begins at 1:30pm, at 2:45pm the Flat Rock Choir will sing, and at 3:00pm the Live Auction starts and the fun begins!

All proceeds will benefit the children and adults served by Flat Rock.  Flat Rock serves individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in residential, vocational and educational settings. Flat Rock is a nonprofit, faith-based organization that is in a covenant relationship with the East Ohio Conference of the United Methodist Church.

The goal for this year’s Quilt Auction is to raise $18,500. We are expect more than 100 quilts to be donated for this year’s auction. Bob Hale from Benefit Auction Services, located in Strongsville, OH, will once again be the auctioneer for this year’s Quilt Auction.

Flat Rock looks forward to working with Strongsville UMC to host this year’s event. With the benevolent spirit of Strongsville UMC and the location of the church, Flat Rock hopes to draw a large crowd for an afternoon of fun and fellowship to celebrate the mission and ministry of Flat Rock Homes.

The mission of Flat Rock Homes is to provide outstanding services which transform lives of persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities, their families and persons with critical needs through a dedication to caring and excellence that demonstrates Christian values.


We treasure all of these hands, those of our residents, our staff, and mostly, yours, the hands that craft more than one hundred quilts for our bi-ennial quilt auction.  The 2015 auction is quickly approaching and we hope that you have selected your design.

If you are ready to turn in your quilt, that is wonderful!  You can contact Rebecca Machovec, Assistant Director of Advancement at (419) 483-7330 x1126 or .  She will assist you in selecting a day and time that you can bring your quilt to Flat Rock.  If you would like to mail your quilt to Flat Rock, please send it to:
