A prayer shawl or other prayer item such as a square with a cross can provide warmth and comfort to someone who is ill, grieving or experiencing any other life challenge. The Prayer Shawl Ministry makes these items which provide a tangible reminder of God’s love, and  the care and prayers of others. 

The group also presents a prayer square to each family with a new baby; and bookmarks for Bibles presented to children of the church.

The group meets every second Saturday, 9:30 – 11:30 am.

For more information, or to request a shawl or other prayer item, contact: Michele Mack at or 636-579-0130 (call or text).
