Prayer Shawl Ministry

“Prayer begins in the heart and the creation of a prayer shawl is a spiritual journey of prayer for the shawl maker. Prayer shawls are tangible symbols of love. They are warm hugs of empathy and support; a private place of escape in which to rest, relax, and renew; something to hold on to when all else seems to be slipping away. Wrapping others in shawls made with prayer and loving thoughts is a gift.” ~ Unknown
This ministry gathers together to knit/crochet prayer shawls for the sick and homebound. These shawls are later anointed by our pastor. Members may work with the group or complete shawls on their own and turn them in to the group when completed. If you would like to contribute to this ministry but are not a knitter, yarn donations are always appreciated. If you or someone you know could benefit from a prayer shawl, blessed by the pastor, please let us know
