PRAYER SHAWL MINISTRY
If you have an interest to make prayer shawls, then this ministry is for YOU! It doesn’t matter if you know how to knit or crochet, this can be the time to learn. This ministry will change your lives and the lives of those we love and lives of those we don’t know who are in need of comfort.
We pray as we knit and crochet together, sharing simple (or more challenging) patterns to create shawls to be given to those in our congregation (and beyond) who may need to feel God’s love and care. We pray over each shawl as we are creating them, then our shawls are blessed by our pastors during a Worship Service..
Each shawl has a story, and we are often amazed at how God is working in and through this ministry.
We meet once a week on Saturdays at 10 AM in the Fellowship Hall. If you feel you cannot commit to coming to the Church, you may work on the shawls at home and turn them into the Church office when completed.
For more information, you may contact: Debbie Grigsby at 910-685-4494 or email at GrigsbyRN@aol.com or you may contact the Church directly. I have several pattern instructions for knitting or crochet. I also teach loom knitting for those who have difficulty holding knitting needles or crochet hooks.
If you do not knit or crochet, but would like to contribute to our ministry, we also welcome donations, so that we can add to our supply of yarn and supplies. If you feel you cannot commit to creating a shawl, we also make hats and scarves to benefit those who come to our Food Pantry. We will also be making prayer bears for the children from our congregation when they are admitted to the hospital.
Come join us for a blessed time of prayer and creativity as we reach out to those in need of comfort and hope.
