“You created every part of me, knitting me in my mother’s womb. For such handiwork, I praise you. Everything you do is marvelous!” Psalm 139:13-14
The Prayer Shawl Ministry in the United Church of Clinton is alive and well thanks to our many talented knitters, those who crochet and those who make fleece blankets. Our Prayer Shawls come in a variety of shapes and sizes so that one can take one that is suitable for the person who is to receive it. The shawls that have been blessed during worship are kept in a container in the Sacristy. A card with the blessing imprinted on it has been attached to each one so they are ready to be taken to anyone in need of a warm hug from the congregation. We always welcome new knitters and crocheters, feel free to use whatever pattern you like.
Instructions are kept on the literature table or can be downloaded with the link below:

The Ministry is a wonderful way to send the love and prayers of the congregation out into the community. Any questions can be directed to the coordinators.
