The Prayer Shawl Ministry of Grace Lutheran Church continues to gain members who knit or crochet Prayer Shawls at home.
A prayer shawl is a knitted or crocheted shawl that is a spiritual practice for the crafter. A prayer is said as the shawl is begun; then many prayers are added with the stitches. The recipient receives the message that many have been and are praying for them. Each shawl is a blend of prayers, talents, gifts and grace.
Our mission is to reach out to those in need with a prayer shawl of prayers and love to comfort, console and strengthen them. For it to be a reminder of God’s promise that He is always with us. What a wonderful ministry for us to offer our talents, gifts and reassures, and wrap others in Christian love and prayers, encircling them with Christ’s healing presence and peace.
In Christian love and prayer, prayer shawls are delivered either by the Pastors or by members of the congregation.
We have purchased a case of yarn to be crafted into shawls so individuals don’t have to buy it on their own. We invite anyone interested in joining our group.
