Blessing of the Prayer Shawls
January 25th During Morning Worship
This past year we have distributed over 40 prayer shawls to members and friends of our congregation. Our prayer shawls have graced the shoulders of the grieving, of those recovering from stroke or surgery, those enduring a difficult pregnancy or undergoing chemotherapy treatments. They have brought comfort and security in fearful times, and perhaps above all, they have served as a reminder that we are not alone on the journey of life or faith.
On January 25th during morning worship, we will join together in blessing the new prayer shawls for distribution this coming year. You may drop off prayer shawls in the church office anytime between now and January 25th. Knitting and crochet patterns for the shawls are available in the church office.
