Please join us the THIRD MONDAY of each month at 6 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall to crochet or knit a prayer shawl. We will teach you if you do not know how to crochet or knit. Have you ever had one of those days where you just needed a hug? We've all been there ourselves, and we also have those friends who need a hug more than we do. If you're looking for a special project to make for a friend in need, now is the time to discover the "Prayer Shawl Ministry". A Prayer Shawl is the greatest gift you can give someone who is having a tough time in life or someone who is recovering from a serious surgery or unfortunate illness and they just need a "pick me up". Let's share God's love.
