Prayer Shawl Ministry
The prayer shawl ministry’s main focus is to provide shawls for people who are hurting in some way (grief, illness or other challenges) or in need of special blessing for other life events. The shawls are to remind them that there is a faith community that cares about them.
Shawls are crocheted or knitted by volunteers both at home and during meetings on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday afternoons of each month.
On occasion, the ministry works on other projects such as making hats, scarves and helmet liners for soldiers; blankets for sick children; hats for cancer patients, etc.
It is encouraged, but not required that volunteers attend the meetings. Most of the yarn used for shawls is donated, so crafters are generally not responsible for purchasing supplies.
