Prayer Shawl Ministry

Care and the love of knitting (and crochet) have been combined into a prayerful ministry that reaches out to those in need of comfort and solace. Many blessings are knitted into every shawl. The knitter begins each shawl with prayers for the recipient. Intentions are continued throughout the creation of the shawl. When the shawl is completed it is offered a final prayer before being sent along its way.

Thus, the blessing is rippled from person to person, with both the giver and receiver feeling the unconditional embrace of a sheltering, loving God! This team meets the second Saturday of each month at 10:00 a.m. for a bit of fellowship, while they knit. Most of the knitting/crocheting is done on your own.  For more information about how to start your own prayer shawl, contact Janet Humphrey (907-1904).
