PRAYER SHAWL MINISTRY
A prayer shawl is a simple shawl created with love and prayer to be given to someone in need. Our hope is anyone who is in need of prayer, hope and comfort may have a shawl and will know that people of Lord of Life Lutheran Church are praying for them. When a shawl has been finished it will be brought to the Church, taken to the altar and blessed. When a shawl is given out it will have a brief prayer attached to it. YOU CAN BE A PART OF THIS MINISTRY! Donations of yarn can be made, it takes 3 skeins of yarn to make one shawl. You can use your talent at crocheting or knitting - simple patterns are available at the church. We have volunteers who are willing to share their talents if you want to learn to crochet or knit, call 393-0700 for more information.
Operation Christmas Child
Every year we support this outreach Mission to provide shoe boxes filled with toys and other fun items for children in need around the world. Each box is an opportunity for the gospel to transform the life of a child, a family, and a community. Everything you need to pack aa box is provided for you on the display table in the church entrance. Please return your boxes by
Sunday, November 20th.
