Prayer Shawl Ministry
500 Prayer Shawls given at Ben Salem United Church of Christ
On Feb. 11, 2007 the Prayer Shawl Ministry started with a small group of people. During the month of February 2013, the prayer shawl ministry reached the total of 500 shawls made and given. That’s 500 times that the LOVE OF GOD and the prayers of people of Ben Salem have been shared with others. Each shawl is a blend of prayers, talents, gifts and grace. A thank you to all who have given of their time, talent, prayers, gifts of yarn and those who have delivered them. We all have been blessed with this ministry. May we continue to share our prayers and talents with others. May God bless all. The Prayer Shawl Committee is in need of helpers to make the prayer shawls. If you can knit or crochet and would like to help, please contact the church office for more information.
