Prayer Shawl Ministry

Primary Responsibility: 

Hold the space at Unity in Frederick or off-site for a monthly meeting (or as needed to fill the needs of the community being served) to prayerfully gather and create works of Prayer Shawls and Lap Blankets by knitting, crocheting, weaving or machine or hand sewing.

Can you: 

Knit, crochet, weave or sew a simple or detailed rectangular or triangular shaped blanket/shawl while praying or blessing the user for their best and highest good?
Excite others to assist in creating additional pieces when or if the need arises?
Help to encourage the Prayer Chaplain Ministry and the minister to be aware of the availability of the shawls/blankets for those in need?


A basic knowledge of knitting, crocheting, weaving or sewing is all the "training/skill" that is needed! Being able to be centered in prayer as you work is a goal that is pretty easily achieved once the purpose is understood.

Why volunteer to be on this team?: 

This is a great way to offer time, talent and treasure to those we care about - in advance of or in the event of a need. During meditation and prayer, many people find they can knit and crochet and deepen their experience.

Why is this team important to our church?: 
Serving others in our community (whether in Unity in Frederick, in the City of Frederick or beyond) is what Unity in Frederick stands for - making a difference by living and sharing the empowering principles of love, peace and prosperity through the expression of the Christ within.
