The Crievewood UMC prayer shawl ministry began in 2005 in memory of Mary Ethridge. Rev. David McIntyre donated some of the memorial funds from his mother, Gladys McIntyre, to be used to help this ministry.
Today, the ministry is funded by the UMW. More than 100 prayer shawls have been given to people in need. Other UM churches have received our prayer shawls when they were needed. These shawls are hand-made by the ladies of Crievewood,
and each are blessed before being delivered. It is our hope that each person who receives one will feel the healing powers and love that went into each stitch. If you would like to knit or crochet prayer shawls, or deliver them, or if you know of someone in need, please contact Susan Cortner at email@example.com or 615-832-0889.
