The Prayer Shawl Ministry exists to show the love of Christ to people who are hurting, sad, sick, or lonely by giving them a hand-crocheted shawl or scarf that represents the love of God in a tangible way. Though they may not know just whom they are praying for, the Prayer Shawl team commits to pray as they crochet and knit.
Weekly Prayer Group
"Where two or three have gathered together" in the name of Jesus, He is in their midst. Come and pray with others. A prayer group gathers year-round on Saturday mornings from 7:30-8:30 a.m. From September through May, we meet in the Conference Room at Elmhurst CRC. In the summer, we join people from nine other churches in Wilder Park. Join us any Saturday. Contact Jack McNamara at 630.782.5204.
Special Prayer Services and Gatherings
Throughout the year, we hold special prayer services and gatherings to practice praying together in various ways. Check the ENews and calendar for times and types.
