Without community there can be no Church! In addition to praying and serving together there are many opportunities for meeting, socializing and playing together.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
Contact: Claudia Dortenzo 803-341-7527
Faith Based, Sharing, Socializing, Caring and Pure Enjoyment! All these describe the Prayer Shawl Ministry! Started in February 2004, members give of their time and talents to let others know they are remembered and special. The members make prayer shawls and lap robes for those who are grieving or in ill health; hats and scarves for the homeless; baby blankets and hats for needy new mothers; cards and bookmarks for veterans. The Ministry also donates prayer shawls and baby items to organizations that are raising money for worthy causes. All this is done with a crochet hook, knitting needles, looms and a lot of love. Come join us on Thursdays 10:30 AM - 12:00 AM in the Annex Building, Room #3. If you don't knit or crochet, members are willing to teach you. Come give us a try.
