Shawl Ministry:  The Shawl Ministry was started in 1998 by two women who knit shawls for women undergoing treatment for serious illness and new mothers.  As the ministry expanded, shawls were made for family, friends, and others in need of comfort and care.  Shawls are now made for additional reasons such as celebrating personal achievement as well as grief, sorrow, and support.  The shawls made by the Shawl Ministry Group will be presented to those who are in need or have made significant contributions to others in need or the church and God's work. 

During the shawl ministry gathering, prayers are shared for those in need and for the work being done.  Also, new friendships are being make to support each other through this project.  Mrs. Clarice Rudolph is the coordinator of the Shawl Ministry.
