Prayer Shawl Ministry

Compassion and the love of knitting/crocheting have been combined into a prayerful ministry and spiritual practice that reaches out to those in need of comfort and solace, as well as in celebration and joy. The members of this ministry knit the shawls by casting on 57 stitches and then using straight knit stitches. The finished shawls are approximately 60 inches long before fringe is added. Many blessings are prayed into every shawl. After a copy of Psalm 121 is attached, a member of the Care Ministry, or the Pastoral staff will give the shawls to those in need. If you would enjoy being a part of this ministry, please contact Sherry Printz, or the church office at 660-747-8158. 



Psalm 121
A song of ascents.
1. I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?
2. My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
3. He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
4. indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
5. The Lord watches over you—
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
6. the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
7. The Lord will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
8. the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.
