Our Prayer Shawl ministry members have knit/crocheted hundreds of shawls to give to those in need of being “wrapped” in God’s love, warmth, and comfort. New members are always welcome, and there are members always ready to teach beginners how to knit or crochet.

No ocean can hold it back.
No river can overtake it.
No whirlwind can go faster.
No army can defeat it.
No law can stop it.
No distance can slow it.
No disease can cripple it.
No force on earth is more powerful or effective
than the power of prayer.
May your unfailing love rest upon us, O Lord, even as we put our hope in you. Psalm 33:22
