Loveland Presbyterian Church starts a new Mission – PRAYER SHAWL MINISTRY
Mary Bowerman, an LPC member who recently passed away, asked how she could serve others with her skills. Mary Bowerman was an avid knitter and crocheter. Our head of Deacons asked Mary to make some “Prayer Shawls” for a member who was hospitalized due to cancer. This lead to many women of the church wanting to learn to knit and/or crochet to make “Prayer Shawls”. From this grew the “Prayer Shawl Ministry”.
The mission of the “Prayer Shawl Ministry” is to serve as an outreach for all in our church who enjoy knitting or crocheting. This ministry has a two fold effect. It is a time to pray for others in need by giving freely of your God-given talents and care for others. For the recipients of the “Prayer Shawls”, they come to know that others care and hold them in their prayers. By reaching out to people in need through a knitted shawl, those in need are encircled with love and the knitter is encircled in an active ministry of their own.
The photographs show a rocking chair covered with many of the Prayer Shawls Mary Bowerman made before her recent passing. At Mary Bowerman’s luncheon following her funeral service at Loveland Presbyterian Church, the centerpieces for the tables included what started this wonderful ministry, a basket filled with yarn and needles.
