Our church has a prayer shawl ministry that provides shawls (lap throws and some baby blankets) that are knitted and/or crocheted by a group dedicated to this ministry.  The shall are available for anyone who might be experiencing an event or time in their lives when a reminder of the love which surrounds them would be appreciated.  Shawls have been blessed with prayer, and a prayer card is enclosed with each one  If you know of a family member, a friend (both local or in another area), or a neighbor who could use a shawl, you can come to the church office and be directed to where the shall are located.  Choose a shawl (color and pattern) that you would like and take it to the person you feel might be blessed by the gift.
