At Creekside, we believe in the power of prayer and that praying to God is both a privilege and priority. Prayer is the connection we have with God. We pray to God by the power of the Holy Spirit and through the relationship that we have with Jesus Christ.
We have two opportunities to serve on our prayer team. One way is to be assigned a day to pray on our 30-day prayer calendar. Secondly, we have a Prayer Connection Group who meet weekly to pray for Creekside, our staff, and the events of the church.
If you are part of our prayer team, the book "Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire" by Jim Cymbala is available to you as a free reading resource. Please email Julie to receive a copy.
And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. - Ephesians 6:18
We all experience challenges in life, times when we could benefit from care and support. Stephen Ministers can provide the emotional and spiritual support care we need when a crisis or difficulty occurs.
Our congregation’s Stephen Ministry equips lay people to provide one-to-one Christian care to people in our congregation and community who are experiencing difficulties in their lives.
Stephen Ministry is a confidential ministry. The identity of those receiving care and everything they discuss with a Stephen Minister remain private.
A Stephen Minister is ….
- A child of God who walks beside someone who is hurting.
- A church member who is carefully selected to serve in this role because of his/her caregiving gifts.
- A layperson with 50 hours of training in providing high quality distinctively Christian care.
- A caring Christian friend who listens, cares, prays, supports, and encourages.
- Someone who meets faithfully each week with his or her care receiver for as long as there is a need.
