FUMC - Prayer Ministry
The Prayer Ministry of First UMC provides an opportunity to transform our congregation and our community through prayer, education and encouragement. It is a source for experiencing God through intercession, personal prayer time, monthly prayer services, classes, and more!
The Prayer Room Ministry consists of intercessory prayer for specific prayer requests that are submitted to the church. Volunteers schedule a time and day (Monday through Friday, 9:00am-5:00pm) to be in the Prayer Room, usually for an hour each week. This prayer time can be spent alone or with a friend or two. Volunteers also send notes of encouragement to people on the prayer list if requested.
The Hedge Ministry consists of volunteering on Sunday mornings to pray from the Prayer Room during the worship services, (8:30 and 11:00 a.m.) for all aspects of the services. The service can be viewed on closed-circuit television. This time may be spent alone or as a small group.
Prayer Shawl Ministry – Volunteers meet weekly on Tuesday afternoons to knit or crochet prayer shawls to be given to those who are ill or are in special circumstances. Yarn, needles, and lessons are provided. Additionally, the “Novice Knitters” meet weekly on Mondays at noon in the Courtyard Kitchen to pray and knit.
