The DeBows Prayer Shawl Ministry started in 2008. Since then, many people have donated their time and talents to create hand-knitted and crocheted shawls to give to those who need healing prayers and the warmth & comfort these shawls can provide. We are extremely grateful to everyone who has contributed to this ministry over the years by making prayer shawls.
While we know some of these people quite well, there are many unnamed contributors that deserve our thanks and acknowledgement. They may be related to members of our church family; mothers, mothers-in-law, sisters, aunts, friends, etc. If you know any of these unnamed contributors, please convey our heartfelt “Thanks”. Without them, our Prayer Shawl Ministry would not have been able to touch the lives of so many in need. God bless each and every one of them.
This is an on-going ministry and prayer shawls are collected throughout the year. The prayer shawls are distributed year-round to members of our faith community that are in need of prayer and during the Advent season when the church visits shut-ins and area Nursing Homes.
The need for prayer shawls is continuous and finished shawls may be given to any church member or dropped off at the church. You can find patterns and other information concerning how to make a prayer shawl at www.shawlministry.com.
