  • The Prayer Shawl Ministry - Coordinator Pastor Jerrianne Plyes
    To support this important ministry, the Church of the FUMC is encouraging congregations and individuals to send prayer shawls to give care and comfort to appropriate individuals in need. The creation and presentation of a prayer shawl, like all acts of generosity, enriches the giver as well as the recipient. Compassion and the love of knitting/crocheting have been combined into a prayerful way of passing on love and joy. Many blessings are prayed into every shawl
    Prayer shawls symbolize shelter, peace and spiritual sustenance. They also can be called comfort shawls or peace shawls.
    Shawls can be used during prayer or meditation; while undergoing medical procedures; during an illness and recovery; while ministering to others; as a comfort after a loss or in times of stress; during bereavement. They also can be used for commitment or marriage ceremonies, birthing or nursing a baby, or as graduation, birthday, anniversary, ordination, or holiday gifts.
