Emmanuel Lutheran Church is a praying community of faithful followers of Jesus.  We believe prayer is necessary to every aspect of congregational life.  Our Prayer Ministry Core Team meets weekly for intercessory prayer on behalf of the needs of our church, our community and the world, as well as offering praise and thanksgiving.

Our Prayer Shawl ministry make and give shawls and lap robes to people who are suffering, as well as to people celebrating positive milestones in life.  When completed, members of the group lay hands on it and offer prayers for the individual who will receive it.  These are a means of expressing our love and concern for members and friends of our congregation, wrapping the recipients with our love and commitment to stay alongside them in prayer.
