During this time of COVID-19 these activities have been suspended.
This ministry began with a group of women who joined together out of their love for fellowship, crocheting / knitting and a desire to be used by God. This ministry has taken off and now these wonderful gifts of love can be found all over the country. Patients in nursing homes, Beth-Shan Ministries and hospitals have been recipients of these prayer shawls and lap robes.
We thank God for the opportunity that this ministry has provided to be used as a gift of love to those who are sick and who are sorrowing. The prayer that is prayed when giving the healing shawl is:” As you wrap yourself in the Prayer Shawl / Lap Robe of comfort…May the Father of Mercy, the Savior of Peace, and the Spirit of Compassion wrap you in their all-encompassing love this day.”
This prayer is shared with the recipient of the shawl so they know the love that goes into it.
Simple directions for a Prayer Shawl are:
|Yarn:||Use 3 skeins of yarn
(It’s washable and very forgiving of mistakes!)
|Needles:||Use size 13, 15, or 17. These needles provide for a loose weave and make the project go fast.|
|To begin:||Cast on 63 stitches|
|Pattern:||Knit 3, purl 3 to the end of the row. (Be sure to set aside enough yarn if you choose to make the fringe for both sides otherwise knit until yarn is gone.)|

We have several opportunities for Bible Study. Our Sunday evening service includes either a topical or exegetical study.
The topical studies often come from our Friday night movies events. Some of the movies we have used for several weeks of study include “The List” and most recently, “The Ultimate Gift.”
Some of the Bible studies are more formal while others are intended to be discussion based.
The women’s Bible Study meets in the Fellowship Hall and focus on different topics throughout the year. They study on the second Tuesday morning of every month. They also include a time of fellowship with snacks and coffee.
Other Bible studies that come up from time to time are: “Bible 101” for those just learning about the Bible and “Journey” an in depth look at the books of the Bible. We often offer informal and discussion based studies. These groups meet in the coffee lounge off of the Fellowship Hall and happen throughout the year. If you have an intrest in a topic let us know!
You are welcome to join any of these studies. Dates and times will be posted on this page, so check back often!

XYZ is a loosely organized group whose purpose is to provide fellowship and fun for those who have reached the milestone of fifty-five years of age (although all are welcome) – by cultivating old and new friendships through a time of fellowship at a monthly breakfast at a local restaurant.
