Prayer Shawl Ministry
Those who love to knit, or crochet are invited to participate. The shawls and prayer blankets are distributed by pastors and our Pastoral Care team members they are meant to symbolize the love and embrace of God. Although, most of the hand work will be done at home, we meet occasionally for fellowship and to pray for the recipients of our shawls.
Our Prayer Shawl Ministry group meets four times a year, meeting times are posted in the Senior Point newsletter.
If you know someone who would benefit from a prayer shawl or prayer blanket please contact Teri Rossi, Caring Ministry at firstname.lastname@example.org or if you would like to learn more about this ministry contact Connie Norton at email@example.com.
Testimony from a knitter:
Connie shared, “As my knitting & crocheting friends know I am a slow knitter. I say I am a good “starter”. Knitting a prayer shawl is peaceful...and as I knit I think of three people who are involved in the process….me the knitter, the minister or volunteer who will deliver the shawl or blanket and the person who will receive the gift. To me it is a process, a blessing to all three with a prayer in every stitch.
Testimonials from prayer shawl recipients:
- “I just had triple bypass surgery on my heart, which came as a very big surprise since I was always told by my cardiologist that my heart was in excellent shape. Boy were they wrong. Thanks to your collective prayers and from all of the others at TWUMC, I can say that it appears that I will be making a full recovery.
- I am so grateful to you and to everyone at TWUMC for your outpouring of support and love during this difficult time in my life. The prayer shawl is just beautiful, and I will always cherish it. It will always remind me of the kindness and love that you all shared with me.”
- “I was recently in the ICU at Memorial Hermann ….a pastor brought me one of your special prayer shawls. It is lovely and even more special knowing that you were praying for me even before I became ill. “
