The Prayer Shawl Ministry provides a tangible gift of God’s love to someone in need in the form of a prayer shawl or lap blanket. As the shawl is being made prayers are given on behalf of the person who will receive the shawl. Many of the women who enjoy this time together have learned from scratch how to knit and crochet themselves into a new ministry. Those who have received a shawl are often deeply moved and inspired in their situations. Many are total strangers. Some people are given prayer albums in addition to or instead of the shawls with written prayers in them as a way of spreading God’s comfort and message of love to them in their time of trial.  So, if you love to knit and or crochet…please contact Karen Melton.  The goal is to be able to have some extra shawls already made and ready to give when the need presents itself.
