2013 Prayer Shawl Ministry


“Go make a diff’rence, we can make a diff’rence. Go make a diff’rence in the world.”
This Christian contemporary hymn was the inspiration for establishing the Prayer Shawl Ministry of Faith Lutheran Church, LCMS, Eldersburg. The ministry consists of women who belong to Faith’s Tuesday morning Bible study group and other women who are interested in the Ministry. Since its inception in January of this year, the Prayer Shawl Ministry has donated approximately 500 handmade items to shelters in Carroll County, a surgical/oncology unit at Johns Hopkins Hospital, the Lutheran Mission Society, pregnancy centers, and the Carroll County Detention Center.

Anyone who can knit or crochet is invited to attend Bible study each Tuesday morning at 10:00 a.m. and stay for Prayer Shawl Ministry on the first and third Tuesday mornings from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. You may attend one or both of these functions. Serving our Lord by serving others is a very satisfying way to say “thank you’ for the blessings we have received. Come join us and together we’ll, “Go make a diff’rence...” Questions may be directed to Marlyn Maufer at 410-795-2331.
