Prayer Shawls Available
What are those things in the basket in the front by the prayer station?

They are prayer shawls which are available for anyone to take to give to a loved one to let that person know they are loved and cared for.  Your loved one may have just had a death in the family, have received a diagnosis of a serious illness, have issues of any kind that need to feel a hug from you, a hug from God. 

These shawls can be given in times of great joy as well. Please pass on these symbols of God’s love.
