• Why have a Corporate Prayer Time?

    by Tom Hicks on August 22, 2014

     Beginning this fall, our church will have a regular time of corporate prayer each Sunday. This emphasis on praying together will be a part of a larger vision to do all that the Bible requires us to do without adding time to our Sunday schedule. In a few weeks, we’ll be
    rolling out this vision so you’ll be able to see how all the parts work together. For now, consider the following reasons that we believe our church should be praying together.

    Trinity1. The Trinity. God is not merely “one.” He’s also a community of three persons. Each person of the Trinity communes with each of the other persons of the Trinity.

    Many Christians feel defeated in their prayer lives.  To pray even five-to-seven minutes seems like an eternity, and their minds wander much of that time.  “I guess it’s me,” many conclude.  “I’m just a second-rate Christian.”  No, if you are indwelled by the Holy Spirit and generally seeking to live in obedience to God’s Word, then the problem likely isn’t you, but your method.  Of course, there is no method that will enliven prayer for those who do not have the Holy Spirit.  But (more…)

  • Get Involved in the Prayer Room Ministry

    by Jon English Lee on July 14, 2009

    We are God’s family, and like all families, we have family responsibilities that have to be accomplished each day to keep the church home functioning.  One of the most important tasks, and one of the easiest to perform, is prayer.  We need you in our Intercessory Prayer Room.  There are many one-hour slots available.  You may not be physically able to do some of the other jobs in the church, but you can pray.  I realize that some of you can’t get to the prayer room.  In that case, I would ask that you earnestly pray for this ministry, and that all our vacant time slots will be filled.  In prayer, God will use you to bless others, and He will bless you for it!  Call Tom Hicks or me to find your special opportunity (time slot) to serve.

    In Christ,
