Prayer Shawls Bring Blessings

Talented knitters and crocheters from the Church Street Service Circle have made fifty prayer shawls. These beautiful shawls, each of unique design, are prayed over by the Service Circle and the Congregational Care Committee and then given to members undergoing cancer treatment, difficult illness, or physical and emotional challenges. As the printed prayer that is given with each shawl says, “May it be a sign of Your loving presence and a reminder that they are surrounded by prayers asking You to give them wings to fly above their troubles.”  If you or a loved ones has a need for this ministry or you are interested in joining us as we knit and crochet please call the church office. You can come to Service Circle which meets on the fourth Tuesday at 9:30 in the Parish Hall, or you can knit and crochet at home and bring them to the church for prayer.
