Did you know that Forest Park Presbyterian Church has a prayer shawl ministry? Our records indicate that many folks have been recipients of these prayerfully crafted items over the years.
What is a "prayer shawl"? It is a hand made (knit, crochet, quilted) wrap or lap blanket which is created very intentionally with prayer, and provided to members (and friends) of the congregation at times of illness, loss, transition, or any time a comforting touch is needed.
The Deacons oversee this ministry, but now find that the inventory of shawls is getting low. If you can knit or crochet, or some way create a shawl, we need you! Any and all contributions appreciated.
Need help, or a pattern, or tools? We can help with that! Not a crafty soul? We can help with that too--yarn donations are a great way to help out! For specifics on yarn needed, pattern suggestions, or just plain old encouragement, check with Diane Schumitsch or Sara Grant for more information.
