Once a month, Needles for the Needy meet to knit Lap Robes and Prayer Shawls for the sick and home-bound and Baby Caps for premature babies and Hats for cancer patients. Each one has been prayed over and blessed asking God to bless those and heal each one who receives this gift. We have provided these gifts to the Veterans Hospital, Garvey Manor, Altoona Hospital, Allegheny Lutheran Home, AseraCare Hospice and our own members of St. James Lutheran Church.

This special group of knitters and crocheters meets on the second Tuesday of the month at 10:00 AM in the church office where they knit and crochet lap robes, prayer shawls and hats for premature babies and cancer patients.
