Attention crocheters and knitters...prayer shawls are symbolic of God’s presence during our times of need, and the
congregation’s love and support.  Anyone with an interest in knitting or crocheting a shawl is invited to make a shawl and
drop it off with Tiffany.  The group meets monthly to socialize while we create.  Can’t meet?  Feel free to contribute shawls
anyway.  For more information, contact Tiffany Horvath (
horvath@fpcdavenport.org).

Knit for Kids: The prayer shawl ministry is expanding!  For many years, members of the Prayer Shawl group have knitted
and crocheted prayer shawls for the ill and bereft in the congregation.  In addition, this past year, the group was asked to
provide shawls to homebound members at Christmas, to young people in the confirmation class, and to infants at baptism.  
We were able to provide as many shawls as were needed and more!

This fall we are expanding our horizons even farther by knitting and crocheting sweaters, hats and blankets to children in
need through the Knit for Kids program.

Since 2009, Knit for Kids has been under the direction of World Vision.  Knit for Kids is a Christian ministry
that, through volunteers, provides sweaters, hats and blankets to children nationally and globally.  If you
are interested in contributing a knitted or crocheted item, please place it in the “Knit for Kids” box found in
the main church office.  Once a boxful of items is collected, it will be shipped to Knit for Kids in Sewickley,
Pennsylvania for distribution.


Women of Hope Bible Study - Wednesday, May 24, 10:00 am

Join with fellow Christian women as we continue to study Into the Word by Anne Graham Lotz. Our group is sharing round
robin leadership of the discussion of the book which is kept at FPC for easy access. We meet the second and fourth
Wednesday of each month (September through May) in Von Maur Hall.


Small Group Opportunities -- NEW OPPORTUNITIES!


Communion to the Furthest Pew is served to members unable to attend church on dates immediately following
communion at church.


Operation Love

Operation Love is a member-to-member outreach for those with short term needs such as transportation, meals, emergency
babysitting, or respite care.


In Touch Ministries

Congregation members provide one-on-one visits to congregation members and friends who have difficulty leaving their
homes. This ministry keeps homebound members "in touch" with the rest of the congregation.


Prayer Chain

The Prayer Chain connects those in need of prayer with church members who are committed to a ministry of prayer. Prayer
requests may be sent to the church office and we will contact the prayer chain coordinator.

Daily Unity Prayer

FPC encourages all members and friends to take a moment to pray around
noon every day. This is when all members and friends ask of themselves: "Am
I living as a Disciple of Christ?"  Listen to God when you pray. Share your faith
by sharing this message with others.
