Members knit or crochet shawls for members and friends of Ascension who need some comfort due to a death in the family or an illness. As they do so, they pray for that person. The finished shawls are presented with a blessing to the person as a reminder that they are loved and prayed for by their church family. Members also create baby prayer shawls for babies who are baptized here and they knit or crochet prayer scarves, which are given to those attending our annual Blue Christmas service, as well as our Ascension School eighth-grade religion class students.
If you would like to join our team of knitters/crocheters, please contact Susanne Hopkins in the church office.
