What Is It? The Prayer Shawl Ministry is a special outreach ministry. This ministry makes and presents shawls to those in need o comfort at times of illness or stress; times of celebration, such as graduation, weddings, or births, giving recipients a tangible reminder of God’s presence, care and love. Over the centuries, shawls have come to symbolize shelter, peace and spiritual sustenance. Members of prayer shawl ministries have lovingly donated their time and talents by creating hand-knitted, crocheted or tied fleece shawls, filled with the power of prayer for those in need.
Who shall I contact if I know of someone who would benefit from receiving a prayer shawl via our ministry?
You may contact Yvette Schambow at 262-470-0187. We meet the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 6:30pm around the fireplace in our Narthex.
How can I help this ministry? You may help in many ways: Join our ministry and help to create shawls, donate materials for the making of the prayer shawls (yarn, fleece, knitting and/or crochet needles), and remember our ministry in your prayers.
Words of appreciation inspire members of the Prayer Shawl Ministry as they continue their mission of spreading love and comfort. Here’s what one person had to say about our gift of a shawl: “It was truly the most meaningful and inspirational gifts she has ever received in her life. When she is having a really painful and down day, she wraps the shawl around her shoulders and finds nothing but peace, happy and comforting thoughts, knowing that the shawl was specially made by one of God’s servants. It truly gives her comfort and healing thoughts knowing and feeling God’s loving arms around her.”
We appreciate your support of our CTS Prayer Shawl Ministry!
