Most of us understand prayer as a conversation with God. It's prayer that Jesus invites us to in Revelation 3:20 when he says "if anyone hears my voice and opens the door I will come in a eat with him and he with me." A praying church is like a family gathered at the table; Jesus is present because he promises to be where two or more are gathered in his name. Around the table we commune over ideas, concerns and needs.
West Shore understands that becoming ike Jesus is becoming a people of prayer—faithfully taking our place at his table and entering into conversation with him and with each other.
Will you consider "joining the conversation" as well? Please visit our volunteer page here or share your prayer requests and praises here. But let's remember that prayer really can't be programmed; wherever two or more are gathered in Jesus' name, prayer happens!
We currently have the following opportunities for prayer available. Please contact Cathy Morgan if you are interested in making a difference.
►First Wednesdays Around Our Tables
For many years West Shore's church-wide prayer meeting took place on the first Wednesday of every month and was held in the church sanctuary. Since September of 2011 we have changed the format and have begun holding home prayer meetings. We encourage families to gather for a simple meal and prayer and to invite a neighbors, friends or church members to join them. Prayer and hospitality work together to more deeply knit together and nourish the body of Chirst.
West Shore's quiet space for those who wish to pray and meditate—a sanctuary reserved
for anyone who desires to meet with God. Feel free to visit any time the building is open;
simply inform the front desk that you will be using it. The chapel may also be reserved for prayer meetings. Call Heidi Curry at 697-0226, extension 101.
Special opportunities, services and spaces to enter more deeply into the passion and
victory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Teams go to visit and pray with members of our body in need.
