Prayer Shawl Ministry

Ladies: Do you ever send a card or a gift when someone is ill? Here is a unique opportunity to get together with other CPCC ladies who enjoy knitting or crocheting to create Prayer Shawls for those who are ill, or have been hospitalized. But, the best part is......the shawls are prayed over for the person who is to receive it every time you come together. And, everytime one has been completed prayers are lifted up for that person before it is sent. What a blessing, not only for the person receiving it, but for you as you create it. Each time you pick up your needles, you will automatically think of the person who is to receive it, pray for them and just think about them and how much they will enjoy the shawl and the blessings God will bestow on them.

There is a book that accompany's this ministry "Knitting into the Mystery", but is not required to be purchased for your participation in this ministry, and neither is actually knowing how to knit or how to crochet. This is another way that Titus 2:3-5 is being demonstrated within the Women's Ministry of CPCC.

We would love to have you join us! Call the church office (234-5963) to sign up, or for more information, or just come join us this month on Monday, January 20th from 6:30 to 8pm in the CPCC parlor.  Beginners are welcomed!

Current Bible Studies

Wednesday evenings from 6:45-8pm, in the parlor of Central Park Christian Church, the women are studying 
2 Samuel.

New Bible Study to begin....

"Stepping Up: A Journey Through the Psalms of Ascent" by Beth Moore

Starting Thursday, January 16th, 2014 from 1-3pm
Location: Vicki Lesser's (3930 NW Brickyard Rd.)
Childcare is available.

This study provides a personal study experience five days a week plus viewer guides for the group video sessions.  This is an in-depth women's Bible study of Psalms 120-134.  

Traveling pilgrims sang these psalms both on the way to the great festivals of the LORD and as key elements of the worship of those festivals.  Just as a song or poem can express feelings of fear, doubt, hope and joy these 15 psalms model how we can voice our own petitions and praises to our God, who is always available and ready to hear us.
