Prayer Shawl Ministry
Prayer Shawl Ministry

We are thrilled to have established a Prayer Shawl Ministry at Shepherd of the Sierra.  Our prayer now is that some of you may wish to join us in any capacity God leads you to.  It is a multi-faceted ministry to extend God’s love and compassion to others through:
 
          Caring – The heart of a loved one is nudged by God to request a Prayer Shawl for someone suffering an extremely difficult physical, emotional, or spiritual concern.

          Creating – A shawl is knitted or crocheted, with love and prayer in every stitch for that individual.  Directions are available for those who would like to work on a shawl.

          Praying – Our Prayer Partners also pray for those a shawl has been requested. Each person will continue to be kept in prayer after receiving their shawl.  

          Blessing – As a Prayer Shawl is completed it will be presented in Sunday Worship to be blessed by Pastor Dave on behalf of S.O.S.

          Supporting – Those able to contribute financially beyond their regular giving are an important part of this ministry too.  Financial assistance to purchase yarn and necessary supplies will be greatly appreciated.  A knitted shawl uses 3 skeins of Lion Brand Homespun yarn ($20).  The shawls are given in a special green bag, wrapped in tissue and with a card of encouragement enclosed.

          Coming Together – We gather in the Conference Room once a month to address any business, pray, and then spend time in fellowship as we knit or crochet.  We meet from 10:00 – 11:30 a.m. on the third Thursday of each month.

          Please prayerfully consider participating in this ministry “to wrap a hurting person in God’s comforting care.”
