Prayer Shawl Ministry

"You created every part of me, knitting me in my Mother's womb. For such handiwork, I praise you. Awesome is this great wonder." Psalm 139:13-14

OUR MISSION:

The Prayer Shawl Ministry glorifies God as we knit (crochet),pray, gather, give and receive. The Shawl provides warmth and surrounds the receipent with love and compassion, symbolic of an unconditionally loving God.


In fall, 2008, the Prayer Shawl Ministry of our congregation began as an outreach program to its members. Shawls are now available by request not only for members, but also for friends, neighbors, coworkers and family members. Shawls are distributed by a personal visit by a member of AMOS,Prayer Chain,or Women's Guild. Ten members have produced over 200 shawls, lap robes and baby afghans sets. All items are dedicated through a special blessing during a worship service.

  1. Join the Prayer Shawl Ministry - work at home at your own pace with your own patterns. Yarn available for those on limited income
  2. Pray for those who make shawls 
  3. Pray for the receipents of our ministry
