Prayer Shawl Ministry
Our Prayer Shawl Ministry was created to reach out to individuals who may be going through rough times, good times, or who may need to be reminded we are praying for them. The Lord has given us talents in the form of knitting and crocheting and through the work of our hands we create prayer shawls, lap blankets, and pocket prayer cloths. We pray our creations bring our love, support, and comfort to those in need and remind them of the constant love and ever-present warmth that God provides each of us.
What's a Prayer Square?
A prayer square is a portable prayer shawl. It is designed to fit in a pocket, purse, desk drawer, etc. These are always available in baskets in the narthex (when you walk in off of Market St.) and the auditorium (on the stage). All prayer squares are pre-blessed and ready to go.
Can I Help?
If you are able to craft the shawls or are curious to learn how, please feel free to contact us. If you have yarn in the attic, let us know. If you remember us in your prayers, let us know!
Can I Make a Request?
Of course! Just let us know and we can have it ready and blessed in a reasonable turnaround time, often by the following Sunday. You and/or the recipient do not need to be members of Union for we are all members of the body of Christ. Contact us now!
