As you know prayer is a vital part of a Christian’s lives. We should follow Christ’s command and example to pray for others as well as on behalf of others, who may not feel comfortable praying. Prayer at Christ The King is:

  • Active daily in the day school, through the monthly phone ministry, during weekly worship and should be daily in our personal lives.
  • We offer additional group prayer on Wednesdays. Contact Carol Cashmer for time & location.
  • Wednesdays also offer two other prayer time choices: Men’s Bible study is at Pennsylvania Rd at 8:00 am and Women’s Bible Study at Pennsylvania Rd. at 9:00 am.
  • Our 22 hr. Prayer Vigil takes place on Good Friday from 8:00 pm through Holy Saturday, ending at 5:00 pm.

While you experience the joy of helping others through prayer, your faith is strengthened as you see how the hand of God works to answer prayer.

Stephen Ministers provide one-to-one Christian care giving. They receive 5 months of training and then are assigned to a care receiver. Care receivers are people who are hurting due to divorce, illness, grief, fear, etc. The Stephen Minister meets once a week with the care receiver. These contacts are discussed confidentially (no names are mentioned) in bi-weekly supervisory meetings in order to implement further beneficial caregiving. If you are interested in becoming a Stephen Minister or are in need of one, please contact Pastor Harry Edenfield through the church office, 734-285-9695.
