ago, a group of ladies began meeting to knit or crochet Prayer Shawls to
be given out to people in the community who are going through a crises
in their life (death or illness). While knitting the shawl they
will pray for the person whom the shawl will be given even if they do
not know who that person will be. When a person is identified who
is going through a crises, they will pray for that person by name and
one of the pastors will bless the shawl as well. The purpose of this
ministry is to show God's Love and to bring comfort to the recipient.
When this ministry was started the ladies
did not have any idea what a blessing this ministry would be to them and
to ones receiving the shawls. One person receiving a shawl said,
"the shawl is wonderful source of comfort." Another said she "knew
everything was going to okay."
Anyone is welcome to join this group on the first and third Tuesday
evenings each month @ 7pm. Even if you can not come to the
group meetings, you are encouraged to knit or crochet at home. For
more information you can contact the church office @ 704-436-6603 or
