"Be joyful always, pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." I Thessalonians 5:16-18
Our prayer ministry provides many opportunities for you to serve God through prayer - for the church, for others, and for yourself.
Weekly Prayer Meeting
Weekly Prayer Meeting takes place Monday morning from 9:00-9:45. Gather in the parlor to lift our prayer concerns, church ministries, community and the world in prayer. All are welcome anytime!
Prayer Walkers walk through the sanctuary and throughout the church building praying for all the ministries, groups and individuals who will use the church building during the coming week. They pray over the pews, the music equipment, pulpit, and at each door throughout the building. They lift in prayer all who will enter that room during the week, asking that all who enter our building may be blessed by God.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
Knitters and crocheters meet to make prayer shawls and lap robes. They are given to anyone in need of comfort, spiritual support, or to celebrate a joyous occasion. They symbolize the warmth of God's love and the presence of prayer. The prayer shawls and lap robes are prayed over as they are made and are placed in the SUMC Prayer Room, available to all at no cost.
No experience or equipment is necessary to participate Wednesdays from 11:00 a.m. -12:00 p.m. in the Church Parlor.
Donations of yarn are always appreciated.
