Grow Your Faith

Central offers a variety of ways in which you can connect and grow your faith.

Hope Through Yarn

Meetings held on the last Saturday of every month at 10:00 am at the Webb City Public Library.

Hope Through Yarn provides hope and comfort in the form of hand crocheted and knitted prayers shawls, lap blankets, hats, scarves and pocket prayer squares.

One of the surprising consequences of this ministry is that the crocheters and knitters who meet and work together to provide hope and comfort to others find that they themselves are blessed by the ministry. Using their hands, eyes and hearts for the Lord, they are given hope and comfort.

We deliver prayer shawls to Freeman Hospital and added Mercy Hospital to our ministry.

Facilitators: Jill Bresson and Nancy Carlson
