Do you knit or crochet? The Prayer Shawl Ministry of Oak Grove next meets on Tuesday, June 27 and is always looking for people who are able to follow a simple knitting or crocheting pattern. Creators gather on the 4th Tuesday of each month for fellowship and to knit or crochet the shawls. The Board of Deacons provides the yarn and some people take three skeins home and do their work there. Finished shawls are kept at the church to be given to those in need of our prayers. We’d love for you to join this wonderful ministry of support. Contact Nancy Kachel with questions (952-884-1895).
July 3 & 4 Church office will be closed.
