Pastoral and Caring Ministries

Whether you are knowledgeable about knitting/crocheting or not, young or not, you are invited and encouraged to come and share in the experience of knitting or crocheting a Prayer Shawl that will be blessed and then given to church members, their families and friends, who may need a "hug" - a visible sign of God’s presence.

Do you know someone who would appreciate the gift of a prayer shawl? Recipients are generally people undergoing chemotherapy, suffering from illness, mourning the loss of a family member, friend or even a pet. These handmade shawls and lap blankets are created with love and prayer, and can bring solace to those suffering emotionally or physically.
