We will be starting a new small group at our church, beginning Nov. 18th. Members will be knitting or crocheting prayer shawls for people who need comfort and prayers. We gather as a group to work on our shawls, then continue or work at home, praying for the recipient of the shawl as we work on it. If you don’t know how to knit or crochet, and would like to learn, you are also welcome. We will teach you! Our leader will be Carol Quinn, recently retired UM pastor who served the North Freedom and Denzer churches most recently. Carol has been attending our church and is passionate about knitting and prayer shawls!
Our first meeting will be on Nov. 18th at noon, following the worship service. This will be an introductory meeting, introducing us to one another and to the ministry of prayer shawls. Come prepared to begin knitting or crocheting, patterns will be provided. If you are a beginner, extra yarn and crochet or knitting needles will be available for you to start. We will meet two more times in December, the 2nd and 16th, either after church or later in the day on Sunday. The time will be determined by the preference of the group. Those interested can sign up at church, or email Carol at firstname.lastname@example.org.
