Prayer Shawl Ministry
Our mission is to meet once a month, except during summer, for fellowship, knitting or crocheting prayer shawls for members of the church, their family, or the community, as requested by those in the church who know of someone who is in poor health or in need of the warmth and comfort of a prayer shawl. We also have shawls available for church members getting married. All recipients and donors names are recorded in a book that is stored with the supply of shawls.
As we are working on a shawl, we ask God to provide healing and comfort to the person and pray for God’s love to surround and support the recipient as the shawl has become a mantle of love.
We have expanded to making caps, scarves and mittens for needful children in the Sioux City schools.
Anyone in the church who can do basic beginner’s knitting or crocheting is welcome to join our group for fun conversation, sharing of your talents, and help with that stitch that’s giving you trouble(!).
For more info, please give Martie Ebner a call at 605-232-4773.
If you know of someone who needs a prayer shawl, please call Anne Cowley at 712-204-5182, who will help you choose from the supply of shawls.
