Prayer Shawl Ministry

Hazel Stoudt, Knitter-in-Chief

Room 226

10am Tuesdays

(no meetings June, July, August)

Men, women, and teens are welcome!

Our Prayer Shawl Ministry is a combination of prayers, knitting, and crocheting. Our goal is to bring God's love to those in need, through the comfort and warmth of handmade shawls.

 

We gather to knit and crochet afghans and shawls for those who are celebrating, going through a crisis or illness, or grieving a loved one. 

 

No experience is necessary! If you would like to learn, we will be very happy to teach you.

Congregational Care Ministry

Hope Church is at heart, a family.

Whether celebrating the high points of life or rallying support for the challenges, we keep in touch and demonstrate our care in a variety of ways.

 

At any time throughout the week, concerns can be circulated via phone and email to be lifted up for prayer.

 

We celebrate milestone birthdays and anniversaries with card showers. In December the home-bound receive a shower of Christmas cards from their church family.

Support for those who find themselves in need can come in the form of visits, meals, a helping hand with a home project, raking leaves, rides to doctor's appointments, prayer shawls and much more. In many cases the support isn't officially assigned, but happens spontaneously when the need becomes known; somebody always steps up and offers to help. Whatever it is, together we find a way.
