Meets in the Parlor, ground floor of the Administration/Education Bldg

Join us in the Parlor for a time of fellowship and service. This group knits prayer shawls for people who are bereaved, undergoing medical treatment, or in any kind of distress. The group meets on Wednesdays at 9:30 a.m. in the Parlor. No experience is necessary! A note is included with the shawl that explains the ministry and the commitment of people to uphold each recipient in prayer during their time of need. The sewing guild also makes hand embroidered baby blankets and beaded Christmas ornaments. Facilitators are Marguerite Radhakrishnan and Leigh Bonner

Ministry pioneer Leigh Bonner explains, "The most stunning thing is to give someone in distress something that is totally unexpected. Something they can't purchase, meant to remind them how close they are to God. They can [literally] lay that comfort over their shoulders and be reminded of God's grace and love and know that people are praying for them. It doesn't take the pain away but it helps to bear it."
