Ideas For Congregation
Jan Gustafson (First, Gladstone) made the prayer banner as described on the ELCA website www.elca.org/prayer/resources/prayerbanner.html. The banner is used in worship and in the prayer chapel.
You can make your own banner for your congregation! providing a drawing of the banner and giving directions on creating your own banner.

Several congregations in the synod have a “prayer labyrinth.” First/Gladstone, Immanuel/Escanaba, Faith/Three Lakes, and Fortune Lake all have labyrinths of one kind or another. Contact any of these congregations for more information on how to make and use your own labyrinth!
