knitting needles and yarn


Prayer Shawl Ministry

"Shawls ... made for centuries universal and embracing,

symbolic of an inclusive, unconditionally loving, God. They

wrap, enfold, comfort, cover, give solace,mother, hug, shelter and beautify.

Those who have received these shawls have been 

uplifted and affirmed, as if given wings to 

fly above their troubles…”

  Janet Bristow - 1998

Women knitting for the Prayer Shawl ministry

Whether you are a novice or an expert at knitting and/or crocheting, all are invited to participate in this exciting new ministry. We will be combining prayer and knitting to benefit others. The prayer shawls will be given as an outreach to those who are ill, grieving, or need a special blessing. Dorothy Boyd has graciously volunteered her talents to teach those interested in knitting or crocheting.

Our gatherings are at 7:00 pm on Wednesdays at the French Press on Williams Blvd. and 12:30 PM in the Church conference room every Thursday.  If you already have knitting needles size 11 or 13, crochet hooks size "M", "N", or "P," please bring them. We can supply you with yarn. Shawls work better with bulky yarns. Come join us to see the benefits this ministry brings to you.
