Prayer Shawl Ministry
The Prayer Shawl Ministry at Christ Church began in February 2011, to create handmade shawls, “tangible evidence of prayer”, (Pastor Ann Russ, “The Prayer Shawl Ministry”), baptismal pillows for Christ church baptisms, and small hats for children at Ronald McDonald House, as gifts of comfort . Each item is prayerfully made, then placed by the altar for a special blessing as a gift of the whole congregation. We knit together at meetings on our own piece and often on a communal shawl passed from hand to hand at meetings, and individually at home. We happily welcome learning or returning knitters or crocheters. Our meetings are held monthly, at Christ Church.
