What are prayer shawls?
The purpose of a prayer shawl is to give someone a tangible example of God’s love and care. The shawl is made of soft yarn so the recipient can wrap up in it and feel God’s arms around him or her. A prayer shawl is made with prayer. The maker of the shawl prays before, during, and after they work on the shawl. Sometimes we know who we are making the shawl for, and sometimes we don’t, but we pray for the person who receives it just the same.
How do I take part in this ministry?
The wonderful thing about our prayer shawl ministry is that anyone can join! If the idea of making an item for someone that carries such meaning appeals to you, please consider becoming a part of our ministry. We meet on the second Sunday of the month from 1:00-3:00pm to share tips, to teach and help the new knitters and crocheters, and to enjoy fellowship. If you are unable to attend meetings, but would still like to take part, you can make your shawls in the comfort of your home and bring them to the group for dedication.
