Prayer Is Our Foundation

Genesis Prayer Garden

We strongly believe that passionate & persistent prayer unleashes God’s power – “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.”  

Matthew 7:7-8

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. (ESV)


The Prayer Team supports members and friends of the congregation and others who request prayers for specific needs.

Stephen Ministry

Everyone goes through difficult times.  Having someone to care, to listen, to shared God’s love with you can help you get through the confusion, stress, or loneliness you may be experiencing.  God does not intend for you to struggle alone.

– Are you in need of a caring, Christian who will listen, empathize, encourage, pray, provide confidential care, and patiently support you as you work through a crisis or difficult time?

– Do you know someone, perhaps a friend, neighbor, co-worker, colleague, or relative who could benefit from this type of care?

Matthew 11:28

28 Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. (ESV)

Journeying through Grief

Journeying through Grief is a simple, powerful way of caring for those who are grieving. A set of four short books are sent to people at four crucial times during the first year after the loss of a loved one. Author Kenneth C. Haugk walks alongside the reader through the grief journey, sharing helpful insights about grief, biblical truths, and stories that provide comfort and reassurance.
