Prayer Shawl Ministry 2023

Prayer Shawl Ministry Team

Celebrates Their Eighth Year Anniversary

On January 15, 2023


Our Prayer Shawl Ministry began in January 2015 by Dottie Obenour.  Within these seven years with the support and the blessings of Wallace Presbyterian Church, the prayer shawl ministry has kept going and has continued to surround people in need and comfort with prayers and love from these shawls.  We thank you for your continued support and prayers.  The Prayer Shawl Ministry has given over 750 prayer shawls to people in need of prayer and comfort.  Here are some of the places the shawls have gone:
