Also new on the website is a feature which highlights any Bible verse and allows reading right from the page.  Just mouse over  the scripture name on any page (this does not currently work in sermon archives).

Prayer Shawl Ministry News



prayer-shawl1The Prayer Shawl Ministry (formerly Casting God’s Love) has been busy!

Here is a picture of a recently completed lapghan, held by Mary Ann Hinkle and Betty Kelly.

Someone donated several of the squares to the Prayer Shawl Ministry.  Mary Ann Hinkle finished the rest of the squares and sewed them together.

It is very warm and will make a wonderful gift to someone needing comfort.


In addition, the picture below shows a triangle shawl created by Ruth Haynie and modeled by Sue Pierce.  This shawl has already been delivered and is currently providing comfort and support.


prayer-shawl3Here is another shawl crocheted by Ruth, with Mary Lou and Sue as the models.

If you would like to have your completed shawl shown on the website, please send your picture to Sue LeStrange at

We continue to meet 6:30-7:30 PM each Wednesday this summer.  Join us!
