What is the purpose of the Prayer Gift Ministry you ask?

The purpose of this ministry is to give a handmade item to someone facing serious health issues, to comfort them during a time of sorrow, to celebrate a time of happiness (ex: wedding,new baby, house warming, etc), or just to simply let them know they are being thought about and are being prayed for. (Such as our shut-ins) The gift would be presented at one of the worship services on Sunday morning to be prayed over by the pastor and anyone else felt lead to do so before being delivered to a recipient.

What type of gifts would be given?

Prayer shawls (crocheted, knitted, quilted or fleece), Prayer Bears, Prayer Angels, Bookmarks (for those who love to read), Hand puppets (for small children), Bags for walkers or wheelchairs, Handmade cards to send out are some examples.

How can you help?
You can help by lending your time and talents in making any of these items. Don’t know how to makeany of them you say? There will be “Prayer Gift Camps” planned to teach anyone wanting to learn how to crochet, knit, quilt, etc with classes that will be taught by some of our very own members!The “camps” will also be held to just gather together for fellowship and work on prayer gifts together!More information on these “camps” along with an organizational meeting will be coming soon.

Not the crafty type but still would like to help?
As with any ministry, donations of materials or money to purchase materials is always welcome.
