Prayer Shawl Ministry Leadership Team

Sue Connell, Sherry Graves, Ruth Roberson, Astra Thornton, Thomas Rawls

The Prayer Shawl Ministry, much like the original group founded in Hartford, Connecticut, is structured to bring compassion and the love of knitting and crocheting into a prayerful ministry and spiritual practice which reaches out to those in need of comfort and solace as well as celebration and joy. The shawl maker begins, and continues with prayers and blessings for the recipient. A final blessing is offered before the shawl is sent on it way.

If you would like to be in an old fashioned "sewing bee" atmosphere with friendly people, doing some good for others, this could be your spot. All are welcome. Knowledge of crocheting or knitting is NOT a prerequisite. Many talented hands have offered to teach those who wish to learn.

Our Prayer Shawl Ministry has concluded its second year, providing crafted items in many directions:

  • 35 blankets were crafted for TBC members, grads, and newborns
  • 148 items were crafted for Community Projects, including adult hats, childrens' hats, angel sets, premie hats, small nursery blankets, children's blankets, mittens, scarves, shawls, washcloths and newborn hats.
  • Please stop by the Prayer Shawl Ministry Room and take a look at our Prayer Shawl Scrapbook, lovingly created and maintained by our own Donna Walker.

    Donations of yarn or gift cards toward the purchase of yarn are appreciated. Click here to view needed donations.
