Prayer Shawls

Do you know of someone who has recently experienced loss of a loved one, is in a stage of grief, is going through loss of physical or mental health, is struggling with addiction, divorce, or a life-threatening illness? Our prayer-shawl team is a group of volunteers who love to minister and bless as they pray and knit shawls & blankets. These shawls provide comfort, strength, love, and more as the wearer wraps themselves in an item prayerfully created with them in mind.
