Prayer Shawl Ministry

In 2007, two women of Asbury UMC started the Prayer Shawl Ministry with an invitation to anyone who could knit or crochet to join them in creating shawls which are then given as gifts of hope, comfort, healing, peace and love.  Since then, we now have 6-8 women creating shawls and others who donate yarn.  Six shawls are delivered each month to Mercy Cancer Treatment Center.  Shawls have been given to folks in 6 area health care centers.  Shawls are available for members and friends to share as hospital and home visits are made.  Approximately 100 shawls are created and gifted each year.  This ministry blesses many–those who pray as they create, those who pray as they give and those who receive the warmth of our love and prayers.
