The creation of loving prayer shawls for people needing the warm arms of concern wrapped around them is the mission of the Beacon of Hope United Methodist Church’s Prayer Shawl Ministry. Prayer shawls are a tangible evidence of the love and prayers that have been expressed for the recipient.
The Prayer Shawl Ministry members knit or crochet shawls that are given to persons who are ill, have suffered a loss, or are in the midst of a life crisis. They are also made for celebrations: whether it be a birthday, anniversary, graduation, the celebration of a friendship or birth of a long awaited child. After each shawl is completed it is dedicated in church and hears the prayers of our congregation. Dedication of shawls takes place on the last Sunday of each month during worship.
