Prayer shawl ministry

In these different times of not being on the Benson campus regularly, our Prayer Shawl Ministry wants you to know prayer shawls are available for pick-up if you know of someone who is in need of extra care and prayer. It could be someone who is dealing with illness or lose or just someone who needs a little pick-me-up in these days of social distancing.


Prayer shawl recipients do not need to be Benson Memorial members, they can be family, friends, coworkers, or neighbors. If you know of someone to whom you would like to gift a prayer shawl please give Pam Williford a call at(919) 846-3469. She will ask you to identify which prayer shawl you would like (see photos above) and arrange a date for you to pick it up.


Your selected prayer shawl will be placed in a paper bag with your name attached and placed just outside the administration building entrance by the office on the day of pick-up. Pick-ups should be planned after 1:00 p.m. so not to be on campus during Preschool hours.


If you know of someone who could benefit from the gift of a prayer shawl but you do not feel comfortable picking it up or delivering it, please let Pam know and our Prayer Shawl Ministry will work to make the delivery. These can be difficult times for many and often knowing that others care and are including them in prayer can be uplifting. A prayer shawl is a reminder of that caring as it wraps the recipient in warmth with each use.
