"Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus." 1 Thes. 5:16-18
The prayer chain is activated daily for all prayer requests that come forward in a 24 hour period of time. The scheduled calling time for non-emergency prayers is 8:00am Monday through Friday. If there is an emergency, the chain is activated at anytime. You can call the church office to activate the prayer chain.
Circle of Prayer Ministers
Circle of Prayer began in 1996 and is available after each service on Sunday morning. The members of this ministry are available to pray with anyone who expresses a need at the end of each service.
Saturday Morning Prayer Group
The Saturday Morning Prayer group began in the mid 1980’s as a small group of people who met together to pray for the Pastors, congregation, community and world. This group meets regularly at 7:00am in the chapel. This is an informal group, and anyone is welcome to attend without previous arrangement.
Thursday Morning Men's Prayer Breakfast
This breakfast is open to any men who wish to attend. It is held every Thursday morning at 7:30am and is prepared by the men of the church. There is a short devotional and then time to pray for the concerns expressed.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
This group meets on the second Monday of each month at 2:00pm in the library. Members gather to knit and crochet prayer shawls to be given to those needing a "hug from God." Each shawl is lovingly made and prayed over by group members before being given to those in need of encouragement or celebration. All are welcome to attend, and instruction is given to anyone wanting to learn.
All prayer requests are kept confidential unless otherwise noted on the prayer request form.
The church also puts out a Weekly Bulletin Prayer List and Monthly Prayer Card. If you would like your prayer request listed on either of those forms, please indicate that when submitting your online prayer request form. Also, if you would like to make changes or additions to the prayer lists, you may also contact the Church office at 561-622-8818.
