The Prayer Shawl Ministry of Hope Lutheran provides hand made prayer shawls and/or lap robes to be presented to members or friends of our church. These are knitted or crocheted with love and prayers for someone in need of comfort due to illness, bereavement or other special need. Anyone may contact a pastor, church office person or a ministry member if you know of someone in need, and we will to its delivery.
Work is done at home but we meet once a month to work and turn in completed shawls to be stored at the church. Upon completion each shawl is blessed in a special ceremony.
We meet the last Tuesday of each month from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. in the Youth Room of the church.
The AIDC ministry group at Hope Lutheran has been gathering for two years to prayerfully consider how Hope might become a more welcoming and inclusive congregation. We have received valuable mentoring and training from the ReconcilingWorks organization which is an independent, Lutheran, membership supported organization. Our group adopted the goal to one day become designated as a Reconciling in Christ (RIC) partner congregation through fulfilling the four Reconciling Works public commitments:
- Clearly state a welcome to people of “all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions” or “LGBTQIA+” and name its commitment to "racial equity" or "anti-racism"
- Be open to calling an LGBTQIA+ and Black, Brown, Indigenous, Person of Color (BIPOC) Rostered Leader
- Allow community space/sanctuary to be used for LGBTQIA+ weddings and blessings
- Making a meaningful contribution annually to support the national RIC program
