Congregational Care Ministry involves the work of our Pastors and Members to provide care and support.
Northwoods Prayer Chain
“But truly God has listened; he has given heed to the words of my prayer.” This quote from Psalm 66:19 is the heart of our prayer ministry. Judi Kenyon faithfully coordinates our prayer chain, e-mailing out requests almost daily to over 170 people who are committed to pray. Requests come through the prayer concern cards in the pews, through our pastors, and/or through members. If you would like to become active in this prayer ministry by receiving these e-mailed prayer requests and praying for our members and their family and friends, or if you have a prayer request you would like to be shared with our prayer chain, please contact Judi Kenyon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Last fall our congregation began a new Prayer Partner ministry. Prayer Partners were matched with some in our church family who have on-going challenges. The Prayer Partner calls every two to three weeks to check in, listen, and commit to pray for them until the next call. This ministry is different from our Prayer Chain. The conversations are confidential unless the person asks for something specific to be shared with the church Prayer Chain.
