Prayer Shawl Ministry

Explore knitting and crocheting as a prayer experience! The completed prayer shawls are used by Congregational Care Ministries to bless those who are hospitalized or experiencing a crisis.

The goals of contemplative knitting/crocheting

· To learn to be quiet, and to enjoy the experience

· To use the physical act of knitting/crocheting as a tool to prepare us to hear God’s voice in the silence

· To prayerfully create something beautiful to comfort and encourage others

· To enjoy the fellowship of others who are on the same journey of exploration
