Prayer Shawl Ministry
Our ministry provides shawls to individuals who are may need to be reminded that someone cares and is praying for them. If you have a passion for people and knit or crochet, join us; if your skills need to be sharpened, or you would like to learn the simple patterns that we use; join us. You do not need to be a member of Epworth UMC to participate in this ministry, nor are you required to attend all meetings. Call the church office if you are interested.
Our goal is to make an impact in our world by showing the love, grace, and mercy that was demonstrated to us through the life of Jesus Christ. We do this through the sharing of our resources, time and energy. Throughout the year we focus on various opportunities we have to make a difference in people’s lives. It may be making health kits for those impacted by earthquakes, preparing packages for soldiers, filling a mitten tree or through our food pantry. We should all realize that the richness we have is not to bring us a life of luxury but to enable to share our bounty with others that through our mission efforts others may come to know Christ’s love.
