Knitting Ministry as part of Health Ministry

As part of Health Ministry at First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) Carbondale, IL, we meet as a group and knit prayer shawls for those in our congregation who are ill, the bereaved, those making transitions in their lives, for new mothers etc.

We are beginning our 5th year as a ministry and to date have given 65 shawls and 5 baby blankets. We meet at an assisted living facility, where our members knit, visit with the residents and pray for those who will receive the shawls or blankets.

Our oldest knitter is 94 years old and we are beginning a children's knitting ministry to teach the children to knit and to teach them to use their knitting for service to others.
