This ministry grew out of the gathering of people who like to knit and crochet, and the influence of groups all over the country who prayerfully create handmade garments and blankets to show love and concern to others. Once completed, our items are blessed by the pastors during worship and then given to those who are ill, recovering from surgery, grieving, or just needing a reminder of God’s love.
We gather every 4th Sunday of the month after the 2nd service to work together and help one another. It’s a great time of conversation, encouragement, and refreshments. Valuable bonds are created within this small but focused group!
Yarn, needles, and patterns are available for anyone who would like to join us.
No experience is necessary. All are welcome!
For more information, call the church office at 310-474-4535 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our next meeting is Sunday, September 24, following the Congregational Meeting (approx. 12:30pm).
Thank you to our Prayer Shawl Plus Ministry, who poured their love and prayers into every knit, stitch, and purl of each of the 50+ scarves blessed Sunday morning, December 11, for recipients at My Friend’s Place. And thank you to Susan Dutra, MPA Director of Development at My Friend’s Place, for being a part of the blessing and receiving the scarves.
“Lord, how good it is to see and touch such wonderful, tangible expressions of your love.”
