Prayer Shawl Ministry
2nd Tuesdays | 1-2:30 pm | Tom Graves Hall

We are a group of adult women (but men are welcome too!) who crochet, knit, and sometimes sew or quilt for people going through a difficult time.  We make prayer shawls, lap blankets, hats, scarves, baby and preemie items, and sleeping mats made from plastic yarn (plarn) made by members of our group.  We are also making soap sacks – small crocheted or knitted bags made from cotton yarn that hold a bar of soap and can be used as a washcloth – that we are donating to the Little Elm Food Bank and Samaritan Inn in McKinney.  We support local hospitals, Austin Street Center in Dallas, assisted living centers, a hospice center, and other organizations as well as our own church members and visitors.  We can teach you to crochet or knit if you’d like to learn.  Join us and make some new friends while helping others in our community! Contact Lisa McDonald at Barryandlisamcdonald@tx.rr.com or 214.356.2950 for more information.
