Heart & Soles
Fetterhoff Chapel coordinates this local mission with support from Mont Alto UMC, Quincy UMC, Mount Union UMC and Central Baptist Church to benefit children who are in need of shoes and other apparel. Heart & Soles serves New Franklin and Mowrey elementary schools.
The Prayer Shawl has a centuries-old history of symbolizing God’s love, comfort and protection. Various forms of Prayer Shawls are referenced in the Bible and represent a range of spiritual purposes. At Fetterhoff Chapel, Prayer Shawls are given to family members, friends and others in need of physical, spiritual, and/or emotional healing and support. Each shawl undergoes a process of prayers before and during the making of each one as well as a blessing ceremony during a Sunday worship service. The Prayer Shawl recipient also receives a prayer and a blessing for courage, strength and healing. The shawl’s warmth and comfort serve as a constant reminder of Christ’s steadfast, loving embrace.
