The Prayer Shawl Ministry meets most on Wednesdays at 6:30 pm in the Memorial Lounge. We always welcome newcomers at our meetings! Just bring a set of size 10.5 or 11 knitting needles and 3 skeins of Red Heart Classic or Super Saver yarn, machine washable/dryable, all in the same color, to the meeting with you. If you have more experience you may wish to purchase 3 skeins of Homespun Yarn, machine washable/dryable, all in the same color. If you don’t have experience with knitting, we will teach you how to make a prayer shawl!
We have added knitting baptismal blankets to our ministry. If you are interested in knitting a baptismal blanket then you need to purchase either Bernat Baby Sport yarn or Pound of Love yarn. We have a pattern specifically for these blankets and 26″-36″ #8 circular needles are required.
All the yarn that we use to knit our shawls is purchased by our members and with donations. If you would like to support our ministry, we gladly accept monetary donations, which are used to buy yarn.
Our ministry is an extension of God’s love and our shawls embrace the recipients with His Holy Spirit. We give our shawls as a gift to those who may be celebrating the birth of a child (also for the baby), a marriage, and graduations; also to those who may be dealing with the grief and sorrow of losing a loved one, for those who are ill, to mention a few.
