For the last several years, our Prayer Shawl Ministry has provided comfort and support for hundreds of adults and children through a variety of gifts — prayer shawls, prayer blankets, chemo caps, baby caps for newborns as well as preemies, pneumonia vests for children, teddy bears, adult hats for OOTC and even knitted shrouds for the little ones who have died before their birth.   Every few months, we bless these items during our Sunday morning worship service.

Our women meet each Wednesday afternoon over coffee and refreshments.   We begin with prayer and are mindful of the ones (both known and unknown) that will receive our gifts.   Our prayer shawls and other items have travelled around the world.

Anyone is welcome to join!  No experience necessary.  We will be happy to teach you!
