UMW Prayer Shawl Ministry 2017:
  (began in 2005 with the help from ladies at Scottville UMC)
  Our prayer shawl ministry continues to be very active, thanks to all the lovely ladies who continue to make the shawls! Thank you! We have many beautiful shawls awaiting to brighten someone’s day in their time of need. We also have yarn and instructions available to knit the shawls. Shawls and yarn are always available, but only on display the 2nd Sunday of the month.
  The following people received a shawl this past year: Linda Myer, Mary Gwen Barrington, Lori Taylor, Rogene Kieszkowski, Gail Niethe, Ruth Streozelec, Mary Workman, Mr. Tyndall, Jyl Miller, Gloria Taylor, Adeline Lange, Aleatha Cox, and Sue Stinson. Laura Ruhle has taken several to her Hospice patients.
  I am sure these people have been blessed by the warmth of God’s love and felt His healing and peaceful presence in their shawl. We continue to receive thank you notes for shawls, with words of how much the shawl has meant.
  Thank you also to all who have taken the time to take a prayer shawl to someone they know is in need and suffering in some way, and thank you also to those who continue to give a love offering to help with the purchase of yarn . This ministry is also supported through our Evangelism Committee.
  Thank you again to all those who continue to knit these lovely shawls….Kathy Kelly, Linda Myer, Cathy Kelly, Janice Young, Monica Stewart, Sharon Alexander, Gail Niethe, Pam Greb, Cheryl Lundberg, Mary Lou Mitteer, Samantha Johnson, Shirley Mitchell, Karen Disegna, and Jane Clark.
