This is the 10th anniversary of the Prayer Shawl Ministry. We have provided 10 shawls since the last meeting and a total of 506 to date. Our group is open to anyone who would like to participate; there are excellent teachers if you would like to learn to knit or crochet. We are grateful for the support we receive from the congregation. Notes from recipients continue to bless us, many of which include touching photographs such as this of Jo Ann’s granddaughter, Katlyn Sears.

1 John 4:7a
Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God.
I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him.
So now I give him to the Lord. For his whole life he will be given over to the Lord.”
And he worshiped the Lord there. 1 Samuel 1:27-28 (NIV)
Milton and Liz want to share the double blessings of their family with their church family.
As members of First United Methodist Church we promise the following:
With God’s help we will proclaim the good news
And live according to the example of Christ.
We will surround Lyla Rose and Tate Hunter
With a community of love and forgiveness,
That they may grow in their trust of God,
And be found faithful in their service to others.
We will pray for Lyla Rose and Tate Hunter,
That they may be true disciples
Who walk in the way that leads to life.
