Prayer Shawl Ministry

Prayer shawls are a tangible symbol that God’s care surrounds us when we are hurting. Shawls are kept in a box in the Christian Education Office and are available to all. You are invited to give a shawl to a friend or family member who is ill, grieving or troubled.

Purls of Wisdom Knit Club

1st Saturday of the Month, 10AM – 12 noon, in the Library (beginning Oct. 2)

Women of all ages and levels of ability create knitted prayer shawls for the church’s prayer shawl ministry and caps for newborn babies.

If you are unable to attend the Saturday sessions, feel free to contact Pat Reddy for a kit with yarn and instructions.
