We Pray as a Community
Turn to God in prayer.
Prayer is the primary way we spend time with God, deepen our faith, and strengthen our relationship with God. When we turn to God in prayer, we move out of ourselves, our own thoughts and ruminations, and into God’s grace and mercy. We can take everything to God in prayer trusting that God is God and God will respond faithfully.
We are a praying church.
Redeemer offers several pathways to praying:
Privately: Join our team of prayer warriors. Every Friday, a prayer list is emailed to a team of about 50 people who pray over the weekly requests.
Written: Write a personal note card or email praying for someone in need of encouragement. The address and request will be assigned on a weekly basis.
Interpersonal Intercession: Pray aloud with another person at a prayer station at our healing service held twice a year. There may be other occasions when a prayer partner is called upon.
Join the prayer team.

Prayer shawl ministry:
Each prayer shawl is knitted or crocheted with prayerful stitches. When they are gifted to someone who is hurting or in need of a special blessing, that person becomes wrapped in the prayers of our community.
When the yarn is received and members of Faithful Hands begin creating the prayer shawls, they are encouraged to pray and be sensitive to the Holy Spirit. Though they don’t know who will receive their creation, they ask the Lord to bless, heal, anoint and guide the recipient. Since 2004, over 200 shawls have been created and gifted through Redeemer’s Prayer Shawl Ministry. Those who have received a shawl have been comforted and felt loved through this ministry.
Redeemer’s Faithful Hands always welcome new members to the group. You may pick up yarn and work on the shawl at home or knit or crochet together every third Thursday of the month from 4:30-6 pm. Contact Gayle Morgan to participate in this ministry. (Do we include personal emails on our website or should I be the primary contact?)
Walk the Santa Rosa Labyrinth:
What is a Labyrinth?
A labyrinth is a contemplative, spiritual tool. Some think of it as a walking meditation or a path of prayer.
At first glance, a labyrinth resembles a maze, but it is different. A labyrinth has only one opening that serves as both entry and exit. It consists of a single meandering, yet purposeful path. You follow the path to the center and then retrace your steps to walk back out. Unlike a maze that offers choices and false leads along the way, you cannot get lost on a labyrinth.
