Heart & Hand Ministry

​Heart & Hand Ministry creates prayer shawls for those in need of comfort and support. The maker of the shawl begins with prayers and blessings for the recipient. The intentions are continued throughout the creation of the shawl. Upon completion, a final blessing is offered before the shawl is sent on its way.

Secret Sisters

Friends supporting one another with small gifts and messages of encouragement.
