Prayer Shawl Ministry
The Prayer Shawl Ministry at FUMC is a group of ladies that knit and crochet. It was organized in 2006 by Ferrell Armstrong and we have given away 284 shawls and lap robes over the years. We have given to people facing health issues, a death in the family, or a birth in the family, to Four Seasons, the Cancer Center, and shared some with a Presbyterian church in Kentucky. We sent shawls and lap robes to the veterans at the Veteran’s Hospital in Marion, Camp Atterbury USO, and with victims of domestic at Turning Point. We have also made scarves for the high school and college graduates. In December we provided scarves and hats to be given to those attending Hot Meals (free hot meal program in the community). If you enjoy knitting or crocheting and would like to join this group, come meet with us in the church library on the first Tuesday of the month from 10:30 a.m. until 12:00 noon.
