The Grace Lutheran Church Prayer Shawl Ministry was founded in 2008. With an average of 10 – 12 members attending monthly, our Prayer Shawl Ministry will have gifted over 1500 shawls, lap robes, baby blankets or afghans through 2017. Each year, we make crosses for our confirmands, shawls and lap robes for our high school graduates and scarves for our college graduates. In addition, each year, we mutually decide on outreach projects we’d like to support. In the past, we’ve gifted items to “Support Our Troops,” USAF Squadron 728 in Eglin Air Force Base, Eglin, FL, Pensacola’s Waterfront Mission, Children’s Home Society, Sacred Heart Hospital’s NICU, Hope Ministry at Northridge Church, Ronald McDonald House, Bayside Manor, Sacred Heart Hospital’s Pediatric Outpatient Oncology Unit and the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office. On average, our small group has donated over 6000 hours yearly to this wonderful ministry. We are a diverse group who meet once monthly, typically on the 4th Saturday each month from 10 a.m. – noon in the Community Building. Our membership consists of people from several different churches, our gifts have been sent to several states and abroad and our statement is that our gifts go to whoever has a need regardless of who they are or where they are located. We also give free crocheting and knitting lessons, and all materials used in our projects are supplied free of charge. Please feel free to stop in! All age groups are welcome.
