The mission of the Intercessory Prayer Ministry is to build disciples to win the world for Christ through the power of praying together. The Intercessory Prayer ministry is committed to fostering a greater emphasis on personal and corporate prayer in the life of the believer and our church. We realize that prayer undergirds every aspect of who we are and what we do. We invite anyone to join us as we pray for people throughout our church, our community, state, nation and our world.
Intercessory Prayer is held every Tuesday and Thursday morning from 6:30am – 9:00am and also every Saturday from 8:00am – 9:00am in the Adkins Chapel.
Each Tuesday, prior to Bible Study you are encouraged to attend Prayer at 6:30pm in the sanctuary. Join us for prayer on the telephone every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday starting at 9:00 p.m. The telephone number is 1-605-475-4350. The access code is (412 632). In the event of inclement weather, we will meet and pray using the telephone conference call line.
The prayer time is facilitated by a member of the Intercessory Prayer Ministry and is open to all. Each night during the telephone conference call we pray specifically, according to the prayer theme for the evening:
• Monday evenings – Mission
• Wednesday evenings – Discipleship
• Friday evenings – Fellowship
• Saturday evenings – Worship
• Sunday evenings – Evangelism
During prayer times, please feel welcome to stay for the entire duration or leave early at your discretion.
