Burke United Methodist Church

A friend that I knew from our church-bowling league is the one who started this ministry at my church. I happened to run into her one evening during the time prayer shawl was going on and she asked me to come down and see if I would like to join. I showed up the very next week and have not few but a few weeks since the middle of March of this year.

In the last year and a half our group has made over 190 shawls. The group meets every Tuesday from 7:30-9:00PM. We have had as few as three to has many has 15 at one time.

I can't say must, but just sitting around knitting and talking for an hour and a half, we have so much fun and the time flies by.

All the people that I have done shawls for have been very appreciative.
