The KnitWits KNIT for others as a WITness to God's love and grace in our lives.
This group meets for prayers and to knit and crochet prayer shawls and other items. Prayer shawls are given to elderly members who are homebound or in nursing homes, as well as to members of all ages who are going through especially difficult times in their lives such as illness or grief. When members receive a prayer shawl, they know that Jesus, through First Church Peoria, remembers and loves them.
In addition to shawls, the KnitWits also knits items for various ministries in need, such as warm items for school children in Liberia. Each item is wrapped up in prayer; the KnitWits spend time praying for each recipient as part of their mission.
