Personal Growth

Personal Growth Activities

We love fellowship with our fellow church members and the community, but we also know it’s important to spend quality time alone with God. As a result, we offer several structured activities to help provide focus in this area. Be sure to watch our Events page for dates and details.

LENTEN PRAYER VIGIL

Our congregation is in prayer for a continuous 12-hour period during the Lenten season (the 40 penitential days before Easter). Members enter into 30 minutes of personal, silent prayer-time in our sanctuary. Stations are set up around the sanctuary to help participants enter into this time of reflection and prayer.  Children are invited and encouraged to join their parents during this time of prayer as stations are appropriate for a variety of ages. 

ADVENT PRAYER VIGIL

Each Advent, our congregation is in prayer for a continuous 12-hour period on a Tuesday, praying for the needs of our world and community.  Participants sign up to enter into 30 minutes of personal, silent prayer-time in our sanctuary. A prayer guide is provided with prompts and Scripture reading to encourage your time in prayer.

QUIET DAYS APART

These periodic, intentional days away from normal routines, living space and busyness offer personal time with God in the support of like-spirited community. We provide themed readings, scripture, group reflection time, lunch and sacred personal space create a day of healing rhythm and holy stillness. Come with me by yourself to a quiet place and get some rest. Mark 6:31

PRAYER GROUP

Thursdays at 11:00 in the prayer room at the church.
