Jesus promised that his Father’s house would be a house of prayer for all nations (Mark 11:17; Isaiah 56:6-7). The Lord also promises that joy would be a primary characteristic of His house (Isaiah 56:6-7).
Our church family is facing a lot of transition. Jeremiah 6:16 says, Thus says the Lord: Stand at the crossroads, and look, and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way lies; and walk in it, and find rest for your souls. We want to stand together, as a community in prayer, and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way lies. And we want to walk together and find rest for our souls.
The Community Prayer Room is a new endeavor we hope will give corporate expression to the growing culture of faithful prayer at Community Church. Beginning on Ascension Day May 13 and going through Pentecost on May 23, we are going to host a 24/7 Prayer Room (with virtual and in-person opportunities) where we can be intentional in prayer together, focusing on a particular part of our life together as a congregation.
In May (13th-23rd), we will focus our prayer together on “Blessing and Sending”—ending well with Pastor Stan and Michelle, keeping them close to our hearts as they make preparations to begin a new chapter, commissioning them in their new season of ministry and all that God will do through them, and encircling them with blessing as they end their time with us.
In June (10th-20th), we will focus our prayer together on “Blessing and Welcoming”—praying for hospitality and welcome in the transition for Rev. Erik Alsgaard and his family.
And in July (8th-18th), we will focus our prayer together on “Blessing and Growing”—for our children, youth, & families; and how Community Church can come alongside our families in the collaborative effort of discipling young people.

When signing up for prayer times, double click on a day and time you’d like to reserve, and the website will prompt you to reserve your spot. More than one person can signup for a slot, and we highly encourage signing up for both individual times AND signing up with others.
On the day before the Prayer Room begins, a daily prayer guide will be provided, along with tips and suggestions for how to pray. And lots of opportunities will be made available to gather together in groups to pray. For more information, please contact the church office.
