Handmade shawls symbolize the love Christ gives no matter what life experiences we happen to endure. The whole process from requesting the prayer, making each shawl, and its delivery is a beautiful recognition that Christ abides in our lives. Prayers have been said from the beginning stitch to hands laid on the shawl in prayer by members of this ministry. Over 450 shawls have been prayerfully made and presented or delivered since its beginning.
The group has grown from five to twelve women and meets the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays at 10:00 A.M. for one hour in the Comfort Shawl Ministry Room on the first floor. We welcome all to our group which includes Tryon UMC members, women within the Tryon NC community, and as far as the Charlotte and Chapel Hill areas. Shawls get personally delivered within a 10-35 mile radius and others sent via USPS.
