Are you a man interested in deepening your faith through prayer? Become a Prayer Warrior!
Prayer Warriors pray before and during each worship service for requests of the congregation. Each prayer warrior commits to one Sunday morning per month to:
Pray over the pastors and others involved in worship that day. This prayer takes place at 7:15 a.m. in the Sanctuary.
Devote one hour of worship time to pray for worshippers and over the prayer request cards collected in worship. Prayer Warriors gather in the 2nd floor prayer chapel.
No extensive experience in prayer is needed to become a Prayer Warrior. The only requirement is a desire to grow your faith through prayer. For more information, contact Pastor Carol Skjegstad by email or at 763.231.2983.
Bless Minnesota is a local non-political movement among denominations, congregations and ministries–as well as representatives from business, education, government and other areas–to adopt every street in prayer!
Adopt your street, and commit to praying for its homes, businesses, schools, parks, churches, etc. (NOTE: Remember to list Calvary as the “sub-group.”) Adopt a street now
Prayer Shawl Ministry
Calvary’s prayer shawl ministry was founded in 2004 by Calvary members Judy Duelo and Linda Wayne. Judy received a prayer shawl after the death of her 22-year-old son, Nick, in a car accident and felt God’s nudge to share the healing gift of a prayer shawl with others. Since then, hundreds of shawls have been knitted and crocheted for those in the midst of illness, grief, a loss of any kind or a significant life transition.
Under the leadership of Jane Scofield and through a generous gift from the estate of Robert and Erma Oberg, the ministry expanded in 2007 to include baptismal prayer shawls, which are given to all infants who are baptized at Calvary. The ministry also includes a special group who makes handmade cards to accompany each prayer shawl and baptismal shawl.
Do you have questions? Want to learn how to knit or crochet?
