Women’s Ministry

Our mission is to unite the women of Wesley Church for the purpose of encouraging fellowship, supporting creativity, and empowering and sustaining spiritual growth in order to involve our community of Christian women in ministry, local and global mission, service and leadership.

Prayer Shawl Ministry

We meet several times a month to create knitted and crocheted shawls for babies and adults who are baptized, and for adults who are facing surgery. Every person entering the Hospice center of the Visiting Nurses Association of St. Luke’s Hospital in Bethlehem receives a Prayer Shawl. Connect with Dot Sekkes or call her at 610-253-2690.

Any woman interested in knitting or crocheting a Prayer Shawl at home -- who cannot come at our first Saturday and third Wednesday meeting times -- please know you are invited to make shawls at home! You can use your own yarn, or you can get supplies from our white cabinet in Room 204. We use only washable yarn that has no wool or any animal hairs -- to avoid allergy problems.

You can bring your finished shawl to put it in the white cabinet, with your name on it - and we can attach a prayer gift card that we put on every shawl. Please call Dot at 610-253-2690 if you have any questions.
