Prayer Partners Informational Sessions
Sunday, March 11 at 10am and noon

Do You Feel Called to a Service of Prayer?
There are two ways that you can serve in a ministry of prayer at King Avenue:  become part of the Prayer Team or serve as a Prayer Partner.  You can learn about both of these ministries in one of two sessions led by Trecia Holdren, leader of the Prayer Partners, and Rev. Colleen Ogle, leader of the prayer team, on March 11.  If you are interested, please attend.
Prayer Partners are people who feel comfortable meeting with other people in the congregation to provide encouragement, prayer, support and a listening ear. We provide training for this ministry, not to equip people to be therapists, but rather, to prepare persons to spiritually support others as they seek to draw closer to God. People who request a prayer partner may be dealing with a variety of life situations-like grief, relationship difficulties, job loss—as well as spiritual needs—discernment, despair, reconciliation, as well as simple support to grow in faith. If you feel a desire to help others in the church in this type of ministry, then please make it a priority to attend on March 11 and, if you cannot attend March 11, contact one of the pastors.
Prayer Team servants will pray for the needs of the congregation shared on the Sunday morning prayer cards by receiving a weekly email list of requests and engaging in intercessory prayer at home.  There are prayer resources and a set of expectations that equip prayer team members for effective ministry.  Learn more about how you can serve on the Prayer Team on March 11.
If you have questions about the Prayer Partners or the Prayer Team Ministry, we will have an information sessions about these ministries after the 9:00 and 11:00 services on Sunday March 11. Please feel free to stop in, meet the team, and get answers to questions you might have.
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.
