If you love to knit, consider making a Prayer Shawl for someone who is ill or hurting and in need of comfort. The Women of the ELCA at Prince of Peace began this ministry in 2010 and have since wrapped in prayer many men and women of our congregation and community.
If you know of someone who could use a prayerful hug, contact the church office and you or someone from the congregation can deliver the shawl with a prayer card. You don't have to be a member of Prince of Peace to participate in this ministry. In fact, many friends from outside the congregation have given shawls.
