Prayer Shawl Ministry

The Bethlehem Prayer Shawl Ministry was founded in February 2008. Since its creation, we have completed 358 shawls and throws that have been sent all over the United States and to three overseas countries.  We have also assisted three other churches in setting up this ministry. Our shawls are made for those who suffer illness, for those who are pregnant, and in thanksgiving! Once a shawl is made, it is delivered to the church and blessed during an upcoming service.  Then it is boxed with a prayer card and sent off. 


If you can knit or crochet we would love to have you as a member of the Shawl Ministry. Nothing warms your heart like a thank you card from someone who received one of these shawls that were prayed over stitch-by-stitch.  Contact any member of the Mission Board for more information.
