Prayer Shawl Ministry

“A Stitch….A Prayer….The Touch of God”

Our Prayer Shawl ministry offers warmth and the message of God’s blessings to those in need of comfort. Members of this ministry knit and crochet special shawls and blankets that receive a congregational blessing during a church service. These hand-made items are made available to anyone experiencing a physical or emotional crisis. Recipients realize that they are not alone but are wrapped in the love and power of God.

Since its beginning in 2008, the prayer shawl ministry has given over 200 prayer shawls to people in need of comfort. This ministry also makes special caps for people undergoing chemotherapy and baby quilts for infants being raised in women’s shelters.

Some Prayer Shawl Ministry members do their knitting and crocheting at regular meetings (see church calendar). Others prefer to work exclusively from home. Either way is fine with us.

This ministry is open to anyone with willing hands. You don’t have to be a member of Edgebrook Lutheran Church. You don’t even have to know how to knit or crochet! We will show you how. Call or email the church office for more information on this wonderful ministry.

If you know of anyone who needs the warmth and comfort of a prayer shawl, call or email the church office and we will make arrangements to get one to you. Again, you or the recipient need not be a member of our congregation. God's love and comfort is for all.
