Prayer Chain/Prayer Shawls, Etc.

While most often we attempt to meet the physical and material needs of our members first, it is always accomplished in a spirit of prayer.  The power of knowing that another person or an entire community of faith is holding you in prayer can be a healing and peaceful presence in the life of the one who is struggling for any number of reasons.

Every day, the people on our prayer chain include those members of our congregation, their family and friends, who have specifically asked to be held in prayer.  Some of our members who have the gift of knitting participate in the national Prayer Shawl Ministry.  The shawl maker begins with prayers and blessings for the recipient. The intentions are continued throughout the creation of the shawl and then upon completion, a final blessing is offered before the shawl is sent on its way to one of our members by one of the pastors on their visits.
