Prayer Shawl Ministry
Created in the convenience of our homes
This ministry creates warm and cozy wraps representing the love of God and those that give it. We pray a blessing over them before the shawl is given, asking for God’s hand of healing on the recipient. The recipient does not need to be a member of our church, we reach out to all who need to know they are not alone—man, woman, or child. We also make “Chemo Caps” to keep the heads of chemotherapy patients warm. Contact the church office if you know of someone in need of these blessings or if you would like to volunteer for this ministry.
