The Prayer Shawl Ministry of WHBC began in Jan. 2004 initiated by a former minister Jana Williams. In the last 17 years we have knitted and crocheted over 600 shawls for those going through difficult times and to celebrate the new babies, graduations and other joyous occasions. The shawls have been given locally as well as across the country and some even overseas. Prayers and a letter or note signed by the ladies as well as the church family accompany each one. Each Christmas scarves and slippers are given to the children at the Baptist Children’s Home in Decatur. Shawls and lap blankets are donated to Hospice Family Care and recently hats were made for Manna House to distribute during the cold weather. The wonderful thank you notes we receive sharing how much the gifts have meant have blessed those of us involved and our Church!
