The Loving Hands Prayer Shawl Ministry is a group of MPC members and friends who gather to create knitted or crocheted shawls as gifts to those who have suffered a loss, are struggling with health or other issues, or are celebrating such events as marriages and baptisms. 

We welcome all women and women to join our ministry. No experience is needed. We will train you! We currently have a need for help in the following areas:

  • Knitters and crocheters to create shawls, scarves, hats and mittens
  • "Fringers" to add that final touch to the shawls
  • Prayer square knitters - a great position for new beginners
  • Assistance with overseeing prayer shawl requests
  • Clerical assistance requiring some light computer skills

Meeting times are weekly on Thursdays from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. in Room 40 of the church, if you are able to attend. All of the above tasks can also be performed from the comfort of your own home.

The Mission Ministry Team at Manassas Presbyterian Church (MPC) represents the combined efforts of the entire congregation in responding to God’s call to help those in need. We witness God’s love in our community and the world by spreading the good news of the Gospel, reaching out to those in need, supporting self-sufficiency for all people and working for a just and peaceful world.

We use the scripture of Matthew 25: 31-45 and the example of the Presbyterian Mission Agency to guide us in our choices for mission outreach. Additionally, the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) calls our denomination to engage in the tasks of restoring creation, through the 1990 resolution “Restoring Creation for Ecology and Justice”.


Co-Chairs for 2019: Bruce Druetzler and Don Van Wingerden
