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.
First United Methodist Church Prayer Shawl Ministry needle crafters, Doug Oliver, Margaret Wilson and Pat Friese display their shawls.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
the Father of mercies and God of all comfort,
who comforts us in all our affliction
so that we will be able to comfort those
who are in any affliction with the comfort
with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4
