First Christian Church Prayer Shawl Ministry

Early this winter our Christian Women's Fellowship president, Janet Holmes, started our First Christian Church's Prayer Shawl Ministry. We started knitting/crocheting with four ladies, meet every week for 2 1/2 hours, and have added three more crafters to our group. We gave our first round of shawls to members of our church who are in health crises (terminal illness or death of the individual or family member) and will soon give out our second round of shawls. We do not serve food or beverage, but have a wonderful fellowship, discussing and praying for our shawl recipients. One of our members, a new widow, received a prayer shawl in the mail the same week she began working with us, an inspiration to us all. These are not the first time prayer shawls have been given to various church members, but this is the beginning of an organized group, created expressly for this service.
