The Prayer Shawl Ministry is a group of women (men are welcome!) who knit or crochet shawls for those who are experiencing difficult times. We gather monthly to work on our shawls. When we finish a shawl, we bless it in a short ceremony as a group. Shawls are then made available for the pastors to give to people they visit.
The prayer shawl recipients feel the tangible warmth of the shawls and the intangible prayers that we have said while creating and blessing the shawls. As they wrap the shawls around themselves, they can feel God’s love and the love and caring of our church community.
