Animal Kinship Ministry

Purpose Statement: Our purpose is to spiritually anchor all of God’s Kingdom by supporting animals and their caregivers in prayer.  We actively recognize and respect our kinship with ALL Life, and we stay consciously aware that God is Life and that all life expresses God.

Animal Kinship Ministry (AKM) Support Services – How we can support you

Bereavement Support Group

Meetings are at Agape on the second Sunday of each month beginning at 2:30pm

The bereavement support group is for those moving through loss of an animal companion from no matter how long ago.  If you feel like bringing a picture(s) of your beloved companion, we would love to place it on the altar during the meeting.

Phone Prayer Support

The Animal Kinship Ministry can support you in prayer at anytime.  Our phone prayer support is provided by Agape Licensed Spiritual Practitioners (ALSP) and consists of a short phone call where one can discuss the desire of their prayer, which is followed by a verbal Spiritual Mind Treatment prayer by the Practitioner.

Some reasons you may want to request prayer:

•             A health challenge with your pet

•             Bereavement support

•             Harmony between two or more animals in your home

•             Blessing of a new animal family member

•             An animal birthday blessing prayer

•             A prayer of gratitude for your beloved animal family member


Annual Blessing of the Animals

If a date is not listed here please check back.  Typically this event is in the Fall of each year.  This event features Agape Ministers and Practitioners who are overjoyed to bestow blessings on any and all of your animal family members.  If your animal companion cannot attend in “person” then we suggest you bring a picture.  Agape’s Blessing of the Animals is features music, festivities and of course the procession of the Blessing.

This event is located in the Agape parking lot.  Please note all animals must be on a leash or in a carrier – Animals are not allowed inside the building at any time.
