Outreach from Rural America

It was just a little over a year ago that our Church started it's Prayer Shawl Ministry. At first there were only a few knitters but now there are more and even some crocheter's who are trying to keep up with the growing need for these shawls.

We used Lion Brand Homespun Yarn and have used all the different colors. Our priest used money from her discretionary fund to fund this project and several of us have bought yarn when needed. We had completed 20 shawls and now more. We can hardly keep up with the need. They are given to anyone who has the need, not just our parishioners. It has become more difficult to keep up with the need. The yarn is so soft and welcomes those who need to know that someone is praying for them and caring.
Our Church is a small rural church in Michigan. Hopefully, we will be able to continue this wonderful outreach program in our area.
