Prayer Shawl Ministry
What is the Prayer Shawl Ministry? A group of people from the church meet each week to pray and to knit or crochet shawl that are given to people who are going through some kind of hardship or crisis. The shawls are prayed over by the congregation, and everyone is encouraged to give them to friends, family, and other community members who would benefit from the knowledge and reminder that they are being prayed for, and from the physical reminder and weight of an object that has been handmade and prayed over.
"Shawls ... made for centuries universal and embracing, symbolic of an inclusive, unconditionally loving, God. They wrap, enfold, comfort, cover, give solace, mother, hug, shelter and beautify" -Janet Bristow
When and where? Tuesday mornings at 9 AM in the church chapel.
What if I don't know how to knit or crochet? We would love to teach you! A prayer shawl is a great first project, because you can use as simple or as complicated a pattern as you choose.
