SHAWL MINISTRY: Our active shawl ministry group meets weekly in the Parlor for knitting, crocheting and conversation. We create prayer shawls to be distributed to members in need of a blessing. Learn more here.
Every few years we offer CPE and AED training to lay leaders and congregants to help educate our population to be able to respond to emergency health needs in the community.
Our committee has collaborated with the Deacons to offer special healing services that invite people forward for a blessing of healing for mental, physical, or spiritual pain.
