FIRST PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH OF EAST HAMPTON

 

 


 

The Prayer Shawl Ministry at our church has been active for a number of years. 
The knitting/crocheting group meets each week for
fellowship and fun while creating lap robes/shawls for distribution by our Pastor and Deacons. 

The blessing of the Prayer Shawl provides healing and comfort to the sick, the lonely and the elderly, or shares in the accomplishment of the graduate, newlywed, and newborn. Like all acts of generosity, the presentation of a Prayer Shawl enriches the giver as well as the recipient.

Please pray for this ministry.  Pray that God would use us to give comfort to those who receive a shawl.

If you would like to join a group please call our church office 324-0711

Current group meets:

Tuesday @1pm at Mary Siska's home.


If
you can't meet with the group you can still knit at home. 

NEWS:  The prayer shawl knitters will continue to be knitting cotton caps for newborn
babies.  In addition to the caps, the hospital is interested in hand knitted or crocheted blankets for the very sad times that present themselves when there is a stillbirth.  At those times the baby is presented to the mother in a handmade blanket for her to hold, which is helpful as part of the grieving process.  The blanket then becomes a keepsake for the mother to take home.  This is a very special ministry.
