Prayer Shawl Ministry

The Gibsonville United Methodist Church Prayer Shawl Ministry was organized by a group of ladies out of a love for knitting and crocheting and their willingness to share these talents with those that might need a “stitch of comfort” in their lives. If you have knitted or crocheted a shawl and received a hug of thanks, you know how special the rewards are. Or, if you have received a shawl for yourself or a loved one, we hope you have felt the strength of prayers from this group.

Each of our members in this group is dedicated to keeping this ministry going. Sadly, sometimes our need for shawls is greater than the shawls we have on hand. Our group is small and we would love to have others join us. If you can knit, crochet, or sew, won’t you please think about being a part of this ministry? Or if you would like to learn to knit or crochet we will be happy to help you get started. Think of the pleasure of giving the gift of a shawl that you have made to someone you love. We welcome your talents, your presence, your support and your prayers to continue the Prayer Shawl Ministry.

The group meets on the second Monday of each month, 1:00 p. m., in the church parlor.
