After seeing prayer shawls, and prayer shawl ministries discussed online, I decided to approach our pastor about starting one at our church. We also have a Stephen Ministry program at our church. This program pairs trained lay ministers with those in need to help them walk through a tough time.
Our pastor was very supportive of starting the prayer shawl ministry! I sent a little blurb to be placed in the church paper, which was done. The staff also placed a slide on the overhead screen in church! So far I have 9 ladies of all ages who are going to participate!
I am so excited to be able to use a talent in this way.
