Ministries: Outreach: Prayer Shawl Ministry
I was sick and you took care of me:
The group gathers every other month on the 3rd Wednesday in Middleton Hall and feels so very blessed to be able to make something that delivers comfort to those in need of spiritual love and light. This ministry provides a prayerful touch of healing for the ill and homebound. This dedicated group of eight women and one gentleman continue to make beautiful and unique prayer shawls for our St. Christopher’s in-reach/out-reach ministry.
As long as there is a need, we are willing to work to fill that need. We branched out to include knitted baby blankets for Project Linus. These blankets include special-sized blankets for premature babies. Each shawl and blanket is blessed, wrapped and delivered as needed. We encourage our church family to request prayer shawls for friends and family. Thus far, the furthest one of our shawls has gone is China. The thank you notes that come our way from people who’ve received a shawl are so touching! It always amazes us how the Lord’s peace and healing are felt by the warmth of our blessed shawls. Thanks be to God!!
