Mt. Pisgah Lutheran Church

Prayer Shawl Ministry

What are the Prayer Shawl Ministry ladies up to? Recipients of our efforts include Church and family members, residents at Brookdale, Sunnydale and The Laurels, patients at Pardee Hospital and the Veterans Hospital and new babies entering our Preschool.

2015 was a very busy year. Our group of 8 created many shawls, lap robes, and blankets. We've made the commitment to present a blanket to each new baby at the Preschool. Overall, we estimate that we created 35 to 40 items this past year.

In the past, we have participated in special projects like making knitted, crocheted, and quilted Christmas stockings for all the children in the church and the school. About 70 stockings were provided.

The current Prayer Shawl Ministry Group consists of Madeline Biddle, Donna Marino, Nona Schmook, Marjorie Zell, Roberta Perkins, Dorothy Lehman and Jean Siebold.

If you would like to be part of the group, we meet the first Wednesday of each month at 1:00 pm in the Church Library. For more information, please call Donna Marino at 828-693-6129 or Jean Siebold at 828-692-7535.
