Our knit and crochet group creates prayer shawls, baptismal shawls, confirmation shawls, caps and lap robes. They provide a significant ministry of comfort and support.  This year at our Prayer Shawl dedication we had 40 prayer shawls, knit caps, and baptismal shawls blessed.  If you, or someone you know, would like a prayer shawl please have them contact Lisa Wink and we will make sure they receive one.

Would you like to be a part of the creation of these garments? We meet every 2nd and 4th Monday at the Wesley House.  The 2nd of the month is a more informal meeting with fellowship and a time to help one another with projects.  The 4th Monday of the month we share in a devotional, prayers and fellowship.
