Group makes prayer shawls for community
LITTLE MOUNTAIN — The Heartfelt Stitches Community Prayer Shawl ministry recently completed prayer shawls and are distributing them to individuals that are in the prayers of so many community volunteers.
These individuals include three recent cancer survivors, individuals facing surgery, an elder senior living in a nursing home, parents of a newborn facing medical situations and an ill and home-bound person.
Heartfelt Stitches is a Dutch Fork community ministry of individuals who knit, crochet, sew and quilt. They create these items to share with individuals in times of sickness and sorrow as well as in times of joy and gladness.
Heartfelt Stitches leaders are Roxie Derrick and Sandy House and the group meets on the first and third Tuesdays and the second and fourth Wednesdays at the Louie C. Derrick Community Center in Little Mountain. There is no cost to join and information about this caring ministry or their meeting schedule call Derrick at 803-345-1373 or House at 803-345-1731.
The group gives their handmade items and there is no cost involved as these items are given with love and caring to those experiencing serious illness, surgery, the loss of loved ones, children experiencing serious ill and during times of joy including birth and baptisms.
“All items are blessed and are a tangible reminder that God continually wraps his loving arms around us and that someone cares for them,” Derrick said.
The group expresses their gratitude for donations of fabric and yarn that have been given. Also, Derrick commended Randy Hydrick and Steve Yandle of Little Mountain for their work expanding the shelving in the group’s shawl storage cabinet.
