Caring & Prayer Ministries
Then some people came, bringing to him a paralyzed man, carried by four of them. And when they could not bring him to Jesus because of the crowd, they removed the roof above him; and after having dug through it, they let down the mat on which the paralytic lay. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” - Mark 2:3-5
As a nurturing, caring congregation, we pray for one another and the world and share our talents to care for one another. If you would like more information on our Caring & Prayer ministries, please contact the Church Office.
If you have a prayer request, please send to email@example.com.
The Faith Card Ministry began in February 2006 from an idea based on our small group study, If You Want to Walk on Water You've Got to Get Out of the Boat! by John Ortberg. It is a group always open to new members.
Our active members make or purchase cards to send to people on our prayer list. Our handmade cards carry a boat logo and the Faith Card ministry inscription on the back. Our talented members share their skills for computer creativity, stamping, photography, special cut-outs, and general crafts. Inspirational messages, including Bible verses are a part of our greetings.
Made in Faith
The works of our hands can comfort those in need or celebrate a joyful event. Made in Faith, our needlework ministry group, meets on the first Wednesday of the month at 7:30pm in Room 200. If you love to knit, crochet, or quilt, or would like to learn, this ministry is for you.
By crafting prayer shawls, baby layettes, lap quilts, scarves, and similar items, we express our care for others and our willingness to pray for them. Each meeting opens with a devotion and closes with our blessing the works that will be given to others. If you are unable to attend the Wednesday evening meetings, you can be a “virtual” member of the group.
Our prayer chain receives prayer requests and immediately sets into action a team that is committed to praying for these requests. If you would like your prayer request to be submitted to the prayer chain, please email our Congregational Care Ministry Team (CCM) firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ecumenical Prayer Cycle
Created by the World Council of Churches, the Ecumenical Prayer Cycle enables us to journey in prayer through every region of the world and through every week of the year affirming our solidarity with Christians all over the world, brothers and sisters living in diverse situations, experiencing diverse problems and sharing diverse gifts.
