Prayer Bear Ministry
Does a hug from a teddy bear light up your day? The Church of the Good Shepherd is starting a Prayer Bear Ministry. These Bears will sit in the Sanctuary to be prayed over and hugged each week. The bears will be available to take to someone who is in need of a little extra love during a time of sorrow. The bear can also be given to someone in the time of celebration (new baby).
Each bear will wear a tag that shares a special verse and lets the recipient know where the bear is from.
We are in need of teddy bears to start this ministry. If you wish to donate teddy bears to this ministry, please make sure it is at least eight inches long. The teddy bears may be used if they are clean and look new. Please do not donate bears that make noise (unless it is a rattle sound for new babies).
