Here is an example of one of our handmade Prayer Angels Blankets.  We make these for people with chronic health conditions to remind them of God’s love and the friends they have at Emmanuel Church.  Since the start of the program two years ago, your contributions have helped us make and deliver 60 (!) prayer blankets.  You can help by meeting with the Prayer Angels after worship on the third Sunday of every month.
