Prayer at the close of Sunday services

At the end of each service on Sunday mornings, if you have a need or desire for prayer - healing, fresh filling of the Holy Spirit, or however God leads - we invite you to come to the front of the sanctuary to receive ministry from one of our prayer team members. Please use one of the chairs in the front of the sanctuary and a prayer team member will join you there.

Healing Prayer / Prophetic Ministry


Healing prayer and prophetic ministry are offered at First Church the 1st Sunday morning of each month or by appointment at a time of your convenience.


Healing Prayer: Receive prayer for physical healing or other need in your life from a small team of caring believers ministering in the love and power of God.


Prophetic Ministry: Receive ministering words of edification, encouragement, and comfort in the spirit of 1 Corinthians 14:1, 3-4, from a team of trained believers. These ministers are learning to move in the gift of prophecy, knowing and prophesying in part (1 Corinthians 13:9). They listen to the Holy Spirit and share what they hear. The recipient is to judge their words according to the Word of God (1 Thessalonians 5:20-21).

Prayer Ministry Training

Do you feel a call to prayer and/or prophetic ministry or just want to experience "more" of God in your life? We invite you to the next step in this process. Steps include:

  • an ongoing and growing personal relationship with God based on Jesus' sacrificial death
  • participation in our encounter experience, allowing the Holy Spirit to work in your life
  • complete the prayer skills training
  • share with leadership your desire and sense of call in this area
  • read the Ministry Team Training Manual
  • review of your calling, skills, desire, and gifts
  • enjoy a mentoring/apprenticeship relationship as you learn and grow

Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 

I Thessalonians 5:16-18
