Prayer Shawl Ministry

Our prayer shawl ministry makes prayer shawls for distribution not only to our members, but to others recommended to the Pastor and members. Prayer shawls have been distributed throughout the United States and across the world.

Pleasant Hills has had a prayer shawl ministry for over 17 years. In those years, we have created and distributed over 900 shawls and 350 afghans to persons in Pleasant Hills, friends and family of people from Pleasant Hills, persons that Rev. Mikayla sees in her ministry and through Hospice of VNA, Domestic Violence Center, and Pastoral Care at MetroHealth where people who are experiencing illness, hospitalization or some other life stressor are given these gorgeous, warm shawls so that they can be reminded of the immenseness of God’s love.

Prayer shawls have also been distributed through persons going on mission trips. Newly baptized babies receive a baby blanket from the church as a part of of their baptism and couples are given a prayer shawl at their weddings to remind them of the love and support from their church family.

The shawls are made using a K3P3 pattern. Baby blankets are created from the knitter or crocheter’s favorite pattern. Some of the afghans are made using the creator’s favorite pattern. Many of the most colorful afghans are made from left-over yarn or from putting together 7 X 9 in knitted or crocheted blocks. Making knitted or crocheted blocks is a great way to learn how to knit or crochet or to take your needlework with you while you are commuting or waiting.

We love to receive donated yarn or monetary contributions so that we can purchase additional yarn.

Most of the needlework is done at home but all are welcome to participate! For more information, please contact any one of the knitters or crocheters, or the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
