“Stitches of Hope” Prayer Shawl Ministry News

We hope you can join us! New faces are ALWAYS welcome!!! And remember, you do NOT need to know how to knit or crochet to be part of our ministry! There are lots of other ways you can help! 

We have plenty of shawls on hand so there will be no meeting in December.  But, please mark Sunday, December 10th on your calendar for our “Stitches of Hope” Christmas luncheon, which will be held at Janet Jackson’s house again this year, immediately after church. (Invitations will be mailed shortly with all the details.) We all had a lot of fun together last year! If you’re thinking about joining our Prayer Shawl Ministry, we’d love to have you come to our luncheon to meet everyone, but please call me if you plan to come (302-366-1538), so I can set a place for you.

Information about “The Stitches of Hope ” Ministry:

The “Stitches of Hope” ministry brings a renewed sense of Hope, Joy, and Peace for our church, our community, and our country.  We meet the 2nd Sunday of each month (for about an hour) for an informal time of praying, talking, stitching, bagging, tagging, laughing, sharing, and comparing our handmade creations with each other. Our meetings are open to everyone, so we hope you will come and join us. You DO NOT need to know how to knit or crochet to be part of our group, but we’d be happy to teach you if you’d like to learn.

We, of course, always welcome new members to join our ministry, but if you are not able to attend our meetings, here are a few other ways that you can help:

1) Donate a box of 2 1/2 gallon size plastic zipper storage bags (available at the Dollar Store)

2) Donate a box of “Thinking of You” or “Get Well” cards (we send these to people who have already received a shawl but need to know that they are not forgotten)

3) Donate STAMPS for mailing the cards  and

4) We can always use your PRAYERS!

Please place your donations in the box (clearly marked for “Stitches of Hope”) in the copy room

If you have any questions, please call Janet Jackson 302-366-1538 or Georgiann Miller 302-328-7654.
