Daily Morning Prayer

 “My house will be called a house of prayer” – Matthew 21:13

Weekday mornings, Monday through Friday, members of the Prayer Team meet in the Fellowship Room of the Sanctuary from 6:00-8:00 AM. The small outside door to the right of the glass doors facing the FLC leads directly into the Chapel. If you need special prayer for a challenging circumstance in your life, a health problem, or to intercede for a family member, we will be happy to pray for you. Or, come and join the Prayer Team. We are praying for the needs of our church, community, nation and world. We welcome anyone who would like to join us.

“We can never expect to grow in the likeness of our Lord unless we follow His example and give more time to communion with the Father. A revival of real praying would produce a spiritual revolution.”
–E.M. Bounds

Monday Evening Prayer

On Monday evenings, from 7:00-9:00 PM, we meet in the Sanctuary for a time of corporate praise and prayer. A Praise Team leads us in unplugged, intimate worship from 7:00-7:30 PM, and then we create a prayer circle and address needs of individuals and the church. Child care is provided if we know of your need in advance! Call church office.

Weekend Prayer

Every Saturday and Sunday, members of the Prayer team gather in the Fellowship Room of the Sanctuary from 8:00-9:00 AM. (on Saturdays, we are sometimes there until later) to prepare hearts for our worship services and to pray specifically for our Church Leadership. We welcome anyone from the community who wants to come by for prayer — for healing, for help with life’s circumstances, and to intercede for others. The outside door to the Fellowship Room will be open, and all are welcome to join us.
