Inspire Gatherings were birthed out of a craft ministry, Pocket Blessings, that God lead me to start along with some amazing ladies after reading 1 Peter 4:10: Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms. We met at the church and made crafts that were then given to people out in the community: nursing homes, WEAVE, NICU, homes for girls coming out of trafficking, etc. As we moved along with Pocket Blessings, God kept nudging to get out of the church to BE the church. To take the gospel message and the craft supplies to the people we were giving them to and allow them to make it instead and get to know them as we crafted. So here we are.
To inspire women to embrace their identity in Christ and find healing through various mediums of arts & crafts.
What We do:
The heart behind the shop is to two fold, to bring you inspiration throughout the day AND bring that same inspiration out in to the community through the Inspire Gatherings. A sweet team of volunteers are coming together once a month to bring the love of Jesus and crafts to women who are choosing to leave addictions and abuse and lies behind for a purposeful life in the Sacramento area.
We bring everything needed but most importantly the genuine love of Christ to each gathering. We pack our bags full of crafting supplies and our hearts filled with prayers and love to create a warm and welcoming environment. All at no cost. Because who doesn't need crafts and Jesus?
Our mugs are made with a mission. Yes, to be filled with your favorite latte or soy chai or cinnamon tea is part of it but just the tip. YOUR purchase makes that possible as the proceeds from each sale funds the gatherings. Proceeds from every purchase goes towards bringing Inspire Gatherings out in the community. Thank you so much for your support.
