Prayer Shawl Ministry
Prayer shawls are wrapped around the seriously ill, their caregivers, people undergoing treatments and medical procedures of all kinds. The bereaved grief stricken and people suffering personal loss of any kind have benefited from them. The shawls are also made for weddings, births, Christmas, birthdays and anniversaries. The prayer shawl is a wonderful way to show love to those we care about.
The individual who creates the shawl prays for the recipient while it is being made. In addition the recipients are remembered at our meetings. Each shawl has a label and a prayer card is included with the shawl.
