Prayer Shawl Ministry

Several years ago our church felt a great need to reach out to our community in individual prayer.  It was then that our prayer shawl ministry began.  Talented parishioners donate crocheted, knitted and sewn shawls to our ministry. As a need arises, a shawl is placed on the alter with a note attached with the name of the recipient and a brief explanation of the need. After the minister prays over the shawl it is passed through the congregation to allow the prayers of the people to be added.  The shawl is then delivered to the individual.  This ministry allows us to “blanket” the individual in prayer and let them know that our congregation is continuing to remember them and lift them before God.  This ministry is an important part of our worship experience.

To donate shawls or get more information, please contact our church office.
