PRAYER BEAR MINISTRY
Our first Generosity Project is known as PRAYER BEAR. Each
time we get a prayer request we get a teddy bear and bring it into
the sanctuary during worship. Each person in worship that day, prays over that bear on the behalf of the person of our prayers. Then we deliver the bear to that person. The bear represents prayer and care and it carries a healing characteristic. In two years we have delivered over 50 bears. The response of recipients has been overwhelming. In one case it was said that the Prayer Bear was more impactful than all of the cards and phone calls received. In another case the recipient was so moved by the Prayer Bear that they took it to the church ans asked to start a Prayer Bear Ministry there. One of our Prayer Bears went to the Tree of Life Synagogue after the horrific shooting there. We are very glad to have such a meaningful ministry. We hope that you take advantage of it in your time of need.
Feel free to contribute to this great ministry by either purchasing a bear or helping us purchase them with a donation.
Each week during worship, we lift up people in prayer and thanks giving. As we do, there are folks in our midst that reach out to these individuals. In some cases this outreach turns into a Generosity Project.
Our Generosity Project is designed to reach out to new neighbors and families in need. It encompasses the five purposes of our church; MISSION, WORSHIP, INVITATION, FELLOWSHIP and DISCIPLESHIP.
Please contact us with your prayer requests. We will begin praying the moment we receive your request.
