Prayer Shawl Knitters


Every Thursday from 10 AM to 12 Noon knitters ranging in skills from expert to novice to “want-to-be knitters” gather to create Prayer Shawls.  The knitting group prays for the health and well being of the future, unknown recipient.

Members of the congregation freely distribute the shawls to anyone who may be in need of comfort. So far more than 500 have been created, prayed over, and distributed to individuals across the country, to service men and women, and to friends living abroad. Small white prayer shawls are made to wrap babies being baptized.

 

Participants: Any one interested in knitting

Meet: Thursdays 10:00 – 12:00 noon every week
