This devoted team of knitters and crocheters shares their talents by crafting prayer shawls for people literally all over the world! Begun in 2008 by a QUMC parishioner who had been gifted with a prayer shawl in a previous church, the group’s mission is to let people feel the comfort of God’s love as they go through both difficult and joyous times in their lives. A group meets at 7pm most Tuesday evenings in the parlor, although some people choose to make the shawls in their homes, and new knitters and crocheters are always welcome. Since the ministry began nine years ago, almost 1600 shawls have been received!
The annual Prayer Shawl Picnic is planned for 5 PM, Tuesday, July 11th at 30 Helen Drive in Queensbury. Anyone interested in our ministry is invited to attend. Please contact Pat Lang at 518-793-2448 or Lois Rowe at 518-798-5072 if you plan to be there.
