WEDNESDAY MORNING BIBLE STUDY

The Wednesday morning bible study group meets in the Fireside Room at Grace on Wednesdays from 9:30-11:30am.

PRAYER SHAWL MINISTRY

Knitters/Crocheters meet in the Fireside Room on the second and fourth Sundays of the month at 3:00pm.
 
Knitters and crocheters come together and use their talents to make prayer shawls.  All knit shawls are prayed over before being distributed. These prayer shawls are used to console those who are grieving, comfort those who are ill, and bring hope to those in despair. They may also be knit/crocheted to celebrate life and its milestones.

Meeting Dates:
  • Monday, September 25th: The first session is just a video segment, no preparation required. That will give us time to advertise and get books.
