Centering Prayer

Online via Zoom, every Tuesday at 4pm

Centering Prayer reads the Gospel for this coming Sunday. This practice helps one to more fully engage times of worship each week. It also invites anyone who comes to be renewed in faith. This community is part of the organization that identifies with Father Thomas Keating.

Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministers serve God by providing distinctively-Christian, confidential, free, one-on-one weekly spiritual support to people going through difficult times. During the past fiscal year, four people have received Stephen Ministry care through Faith’s program. We’re excited about having more people sharing their gifts through this ministry and invite anyone who feels called to this caring ministry to contact us about becoming a Stephen Minister. 

OTHER WAYS WE PRAY

Eucharistic Ministry. Eucharistic Ministers take communion from Sunday morning worship to people who are homebound due to health concerns. Please let us know if somebody you know could use communion brought to them.

Prayer Chain. If somebody you know is in immediate crisis, we will fire up the prayer chain. In the prayer chain, several members of our congregation are called and texted so that we can all pray.

Prayer Shawls. The Prayer shawl ministry continues by individuals who pray as they crochet shawls, which are given to students, homebound persons, and persons with special needs.
