                                                PRAYER SHAWL MINISTRY

The Prayer Shawl Ministry is a ‘hands-on’ ministry, offering the warmth of a soft

touch in times of celebration, graduations, weddings, and birth. The ministry

provides comfort in times of distress, illness, and bereavement with intricately

woven shawls, lap blankets, and afghans.

 

Gifted hands, anointed hands, industrious hands, inspires the ministry to create

with prayers, and creative individuality these consecrated garments. They are

offered, “to do the work of the Lord”, and are as pleasing to the receiver as the giver.

 

We are happy to teach. Come join us - Be a part of this ministry. The blessings will

be yours!


New Covenant MBC Prayer Shawl Ministry meets monthly on the first Saturday @

1:00 p.m. in the Church Fellowship Hall.

 

May our Lord Jesus Christ continue to bless the Prayer Shawl Ministry.

*******************************************************************************                                                              PREVENT THE FLU

Get the Flu vaccine. It’s not too late! It can prevent other illnesses. While it may

vary with how it works people can still get sick but with milder signs and symptoms.


The flu is contagious. It spreads from person to person often through the air from a cough, sneeze or from person to person contact.


1) Keep your distance from people who are coughing or sneezing. If you are 

sick stay home. 


2) Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Make it a priority to wash your

hands before eating or when you touch your eyes, nose or mouth. 


             3) Disinfect surfaces including cell phones, keyboard and work phone. The flu

             virus can hang on to  surfaces like door knobs for hours, so handwashing is

             very important.



             4) Strengthen your immune system. Eat healthy, exercise, no smoking, get a

             good night sleep and minimize stress.


Most people who get the flu feel better in a week or two. Some people get very sick.

Their body is fighting off the flu virus and they may end up with secondary infection

as pneumonia.


The Flu is sometimes confused with the common cold. Signs and symptoms are of a rapid onset. There is cough, sore throat, body aches, fever. It’s unlikely to have a fever with the common cold. The level of misery that comes on suddenly with the flu is the indicative difference from the common cold. (Center for Disease Control, 2017)


The single best way to prevent the flu is to get vaccinated and maintain frequent

and proper handwashing techniques. Handwashing will prevent you from the flu! 

If soap and water are not available use an alcoholic base hand sanitizer.

                                    INSPIRATIONAL THOUGHT

             The purpose of prayer is not to get what we want, but to become what God wants.
