Shawls and Lap Robes offered for blessings on the altar at Albion First United Methodist Church
The Prayer Shawl Group is a special ministry at Albion First United Methodist Church. A group of ladies work to knit or crochet shawls and lap robes to be given to people who are undergoing surgery or other serious illness, as well as shut-ins. Whether the ladies knit together in fellowship meetings or on their own, a lot of love and prayer goes into each and every shawl, which are typically given to women, and lap robe, which are typically given to men. The shawls / lap robes are placed on the altar and blessed by Pastor Jack prior to being presented to the recipients. These gifts include a prayer and a note of well wishes for their speedy recovery.
We welcome anyone who would like to participate in this ministry.
