Prayer Shawl Ministry

First Baptist Church Birmingham became involved in the Prayer Shawl Ministry in January of 2003 when a member spoke to us about a program founded by Janet Bristow and Victoria Galo of Hartford Connecticut.  We
celebrate their vision and compassion for others in this ministry of peace, prayer, comfort and joy.

The Prayer Shawl Ministry at First Baptist Birmingham has become a wonderful way to connect with others in a spirit of prayer and peace.  Shawls, scarves, baby quilts and hats are knit or crocheted by members for others, not just in the congregation but throughout the community.

Our items, prayerfully knit have also been donated to shelters to
provide warmth and comfort to strangers.  Members have donated yarn for the group to use.  All works are prayed over by the congregation prior to giving.

We meet once a month, September through June, one evening group and one daytime group.

Please contact the church at 248-644-0550 for details and to speak with someone about this ministry.
