We believe that God answers prayers and blesses those who seek him.  So for these winter months (December 2013 through February 2014), we are calling one another to pray for our church and our community.  It is our hope that, in response to our prayers, God will grant us a new measure of life, strength, and guidance.



December 2013 through February 2014

Our first Season of Prayer is now complete!  Thanks to all who took extra time to pray for our church, one another, and our community.

  1. Ephesians 6:18 — “And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.  With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.” (NIV)

We are encouraging the church to gather in groups weekly to pray.  Groups may meet whenever they wish and can choose whether to pray about specific topics.  Some groups are Bible study groups that will continue to meet as usual, but will devote extra time to prayer.  Other groups are new groups that will meet specifically to pray together.  Check with the group leader to find out more about a group you might be interested in joining.


A few special prayer groups formed to pray together during the Season of Prayer.  In addition, Bible study and prayer groups that were already meeting spent extra time in prayer in support of the Season of Prayer.



In addition to taking extra time to pray in the winter of 2013-2014, we also focused some of our teaching around the topic of prayer.

The Auditorium Bible Class (9-10 a.m. Sundays) studied the topic of Praying through Song.  The class looked at various prayers in Scripture, especially from the Bible’s book of Psalms, which offer insight into the wide range of types of prayers ancient Israel offered up to the Lord in their songs.  Application was made to songs the church sings today that serve as prayers, many of which draw directly from Scripture.

The lessons in our worship assembly in January and February focused on the prayers of Jesus and his teachings on prayer.
