Prayer Wrap Ministry

Prayer Wrap Ministry

Have you checked out the Prayer Wrap display in Fellowship Hall recently? We’ve gotten in some wonderful new Wraps! 

Remember, when you see a need, come get a Prayer Wrap. They come in all sizes, shapes and colors, choose one that fits your situation best. They are on the Prayer Wrap display in the Fellowship Hall.

If you are busily knitting or crocheting away, when you finish your Wrap, bring it to Fellowship Hall and put it on the Prayer Chest. Fill out a line on the sheet provided. We will include a card telling about our ministry, including the name of the Wrap creator, our prayers of blessing, washing instructions, and the church address and phone for each Wrap.

Donations of yarn would be very welcome! We want soft, bulky (no baby yarn), synthetic yarn (no wool, wool blends, angora, or cotton) that is machine washable and dryable. Acrylics are best. We have used the Lion brand, Red Heart Light and Lofty about 6oz. (5 skeins), Red heart Bright and Lofty about 6 oz. (5 skeins), Red Heart 4 ply knitting worsted 4-6 oz.(5 skeins). Variegated colors or solid colors are fine as are bright colors or pastels. Hobby Lobby, Michael's, Lisa's are good places to buy yarn. Hancock's Fabrics has some yarn, but it is usually more expensive unless they have a really good sale. Even if all you have are odds and ends, we’d love to have that, too. Just put the yarn in the Prayer Chest and we’ll get it where it needs to go. If you would like to make a financial contribution, just make out a check to the church with a Prayer Wrap memo, or put cash in an envelope and mark it Prayer Wrap. We’ll do the rest.
