Prayer Requests
"Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours." Mark 11:24

We are a "People of Prayer"
We have a prayer chain, prayer retreats and small group prayer meetings. To submit a prayer request or to participate in any of these opportunities, please contact us by phone at (218) 384-4501 or email at

This is a small group ministry at Bethesda! Do you knit, crochet or want to learn and enjoy working on projects in small group settings and on your own? Want to experience the joy of sharing your gifts of prayer and warmth with others?  Then you may be interested in becoming involved in Bethesda's newest outreach ministry: The Prayer Shawl Ministry.

We create and pray over shawls to be given to members of our community who may benefit from the warmth of the shawl and comfort of the prayers!  This Shawl Ministry will gladly accept donations to purchase yarn or donations of soft suitable yarn also appreciated!

If you know of someone who might benefit from receiving a shawl or if you have any question about the ministry please contact the church office (218) 384-4501.

NOTE: We plan to begin an Evening Group. If you would be interested in participating in a group that meets in the evening, please call the church office.
