Upcoming Events
The Prayer Shawl Ministry is an ecumenical group open to one and all.  It meets on the last Monday of the month from September through June at 7:00 P.M. in the parlor at First Church.  Anyone wishing to share in this ministry is welcome and they need not be proficient in knitting or crocheting.  If individuals are unable to attend the meetings but would like to knit or crochet Prayer Shawls, their contributions are most welcome. 
Prayer Shawls are blessed on the first Sunday of the month, Communion Sunday.  Under the leadership of Rev. Frank Groggett, the congregation participates in the blessing.
The purpose of the ministry is to offer healing and comfort to those dealing with loss, illness, end of life issues or going through a difficult life changing experience such as the loss of a job or divorce. The Prayer Shawls are for anyone who needs comfort for whatever reason.  
There is a yarn chest open to anyone wishing to make use of this resource.  Donations of yarn (3-4 skeins) or monetary donations to purchase yarn are always welcome.  
As of June 2011, over 210 Prayer Shawls have been gifted to individuals and local nursing homes.





We welcome you to our congregation.  No matter where you are in life or who you are, we welcome you to join us for an hour or for a lifetime.
