This hardworking group of ladies meets each Wednesday to knit or crochet shawls to give to those in crisis (illness, grief, etc.) Each shawl or lap blanket is woven with thoughts of healing, love, hope, cheer and encouragement. If you are interested in being a part of this group, but don’t knit or crochet—don’t worry, we will teach you! The purpose of knitting/crocheting the prayer shawl is to weave thoughts of healing, love, hope, cheer and encouragement into each piece, as we knit or crochet so that it may comfort the recipient. There is a ritual and blessing for each completed shawl before presenting it.

Volunteers can knit or crochet at 10 a.m. each Wednesday at the church, or at home. For more information, email
