Prayer Shawl Ministry

We have had Prayer Shawl Ministry at Second Baptist for several years, but I joined last fall. We not only make shawls for ill or grieving people,but have other projects as well. Last fall our group made over 80 sets of hats and scarves, plus other hats, scarves, and head bands for a Christmas store for less advantaged children. CARITAS, for homeless people has also benefited from gifts of scarves.Another project is to make baby blankets for babies who are dedicated in ceremonies at church.
For the Christmas Store items, we used Fun Fur, Homespun, Heartland and probably other yarns.
We meet twice a month for two hours, but we also work at home.
It has been so enjoyable. I love getting to know the other women, and working with them. It is gratifying to know that our work is helping others.
