Prayer Ministries

Prayer Shawls

Do you know someone who would benefit from receiving a prayer shawl, a throw, or an afghan?  These are welcomed by those who have an illness, such as cancer, or for joyous occasions like the birth of a baby.  Our Prayer Shawl Ministry would love to provide these to our church family! Please contact: Barbara Stephens, barbarahs@cox.net

Prayer Support

There are many ways you can seek and engage in prayer at GBPC:

  • Prayer requests may be written on the Connect Cards located in the pew racks and placed in the offering plate.
  •  A prayer chain is activated for urgent needs when requested
  • A prayer covenant is updated each Friday and available in the narthex

Pastors’ aides meet with the pastors weekly, and the deacons meet monthly, to pray for the needs of church members. Contact the church office (547-4706) for more information about any of these ministries.

Prayer in the Parlor

Each Sunday morning we are seeking prayer warriors to pray!

  • Pray for the service—worship leaders, the effectiveness of the preached word, the needs of those in the congregation
  • Pray with anyone who comes with a need during/following the service
