The Prayer Ministry creates space for people to step into God's presence, lift up prayer for the congregation, and receive individualized prayer. There are several opportunities to engage this ministry or get involved.

Prayer During Sunday Worship

During the closing worship set of every Sunday service, several pastors and trained members of our Prayer Team are available in the back of the sanctuary to provide individualized prayer for anyone desiring to receive prayer. This is a safe and confidential opportunity to stand in the presence of God with a loving, prayerful person and simply receive. You can share something burdening you and the Prayer Team member can pray specifically for you. Or you can request prayer without sharing any details, and the Prayer Team will be happy to pray generally for you. Anyone is welcome to receive prayer!

Tuesday Morning Prayer

Every Tuesday morning at 6:45am in the Stow Chapel, a small group gathers to pray for one another and for the life of the church and her people. Coffee will be ready when you arrive.  All are welcome to come and pray. 

Prayer Gathering Before Service

Another small group gathers before our Sunday worship service at Gates each week at 9:40am to pray specifically for the morning's service as God gathers God's people and as we prepare to respond to God. 

If you are interested in any of these opportunities, getting involved in the ministry or prayer, or growing in your own life of prayer, please contact Pastor Susan at
