For many years Tyler Memorial United Methodist Church has provided shawls for those who are ill, recovering from surgery or just going through a rough time. These shawls are prayed over as they are being made and then placed on the altar for the Pastor and the church congregation to recognize and ask for God's blessing upon them to provide comfort, warmth and peace to those in need.
Anyone who likes to knit, crochet, quilt, or sew is invited to use your talents to provide these much needed items. There is always a need for shawls, lap blankets, and baby blankets. This ministry provides the yarn, or you can purchase your own choice and be reimbursed. If you know someone in need if one of these items or would like more information about making something please contact Marilyn Burchwell.(Marilyn Burchwell.)
