Our church’s Prayer Shawl Ministry gives these colorful hand crocheted and knitted shawls to individuals in our community who need comfort for any reason or simply needs an extra blessing. Over the years, our congregation has made and given out over 500 of these shawls.
When you attend church in person, you may notice several people creating these beautiful shawls during the Sunday service. For some, this craft is like meditation or even an old school fidget spinner. Keeping our hands busy during the message allows us to both be of service to others and focus on the message to nourish our own spirit.
If you’d like to contribute to our Prayer Shawl Ministry, please contact our church at firstname.lastname@example.org. There are many ways in which you can participate including donating yarn (or money for yarn), crocheting or knitting shawls, or helping others by balling yarn or adding fringe. We can help you get started by supplying a pattern or offering guidance.
