An important part of CCC’s focus is to passionately love and care for one another.
CARE (Compassion, Acceptance, Relationships, and Encouragement)
is part of our ministry here that seeks to extend help to each person who attends here whether it is by prayer, providing for physical needs (meals, visitation, special helps), or just walking alongside you in the “troubled times.” As we live in community, we seek to offer welcome, assistance, prayer and support to each other!
… as our humble dependence upon God, one of CCC’s core values, is the heartbeat of all ministry. Without prayer our work is futile. Prayer deepens our intimacy with God and unites us with one another in fellowship. As we go deeper in prayer, we desire for it to become a lifestyle, a joyful discipline, and a wellspring of God’s power and provision in the lives of his people.
Ways to participate in the Prayer Ministry:
- E-mail Prayer Chain: To seek prayer support for any request, email firstname.lastname@example.org. The coordinator will send out the request within a few hours to those who have agreed to pray for the needs of our body. When appropriate, the requester’s contact information is included so that intercessors may make direct contact to encourage and minister in tangible ways, as the Spirit leads.
- Become a Prayer Request Intercessor: If you are interested in joining the team of intercessors who pray for emailed requests from our congregation, simply email email@example.com and indicate your interest.
- House of Prayer guide: This monthly guide provides current prayer requests and praises from the leaders of our various ministries. This guide is the most significant tool to specifically and intentionally pray for our church’s ministry throughout the month. (This is also offered in a printed format on the literature rack located by the Connections Center.) If you desire to receive these ministry praises and requests via a daily email – one ministry per day – email firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the distribution list.
- Prayer Wall: There is a prayer wall outside the Prayer Room located just off the Commons. Feel free to stop by, write your prayer on the cards supplied and roll it into the wall. These requests are not shared broadly; only Pastoral Staff and key ministry leaders read and pray for these requests.
- Prayer Room Intercessors’ Team: Members of this team are available after each service for encouragement, prayer and discussion of heart and faith matters. The Prayer Room is located just off of the Commons next to the Alternative Worship Venue. If you are interested in joining this team, contact Fred Berkheimer: email@example.com
