Prayer Shawl Ministry

October 15 at 10 am

A group of prayerful, enthusiastic knitters/crocheters meet in the Fireside Room for our Prayer Shawl Ministry. The shawls are for comfort, outreach and sharing spiritual bonds, prayers for encouragement and community. When finished, the shawls are given away to anyone who might need a reminder that they are loved and cared for.

We will continue to meet on the 3rd Monday of the month from 10 am to 12 pm in the Fireside Room. Patterns to knit or crochet a prayer shawl are available in the church office for work at home. Contact Joanne Matson or Chris Jenkins for more information.

All women of the church are invited to participate in Women's Fellowship. Please join us for one or both of the above activities.
