Currey Creek Family,
Pray continually! In our minds, those two simple words from Paul’s first letter to the church at Thessalonica (1 Thessalonians 5:17) best embody the centrality of prayer at Currey Creek. Prayer is foundational to every aspect of ministry at Currey Creek, serving to connect us with God and one another. The Lord delights in our prayers (Proverbs 15:8) and hears our prayers (1 John 5:14). With prayer serving as a central tenant in all we do at Currey Creek, we’d encourage you to take advantage of the opportunity to request that the Elders be in prayer either for you and/or directly with you.
Each Sunday morning before we gather as a church family to worship our glorious God, your Elders gather to pray for, among many things, the service, for the Lord to go before us in preparing hearts and minds to hear the truth of the Gospel, and for specific needs in the church body. As Elders, one of our primary roles is to pray for and with the church body. We embrace the opportunity and privilege to humble ourselves in prayer and petition our loving heavenly Father on your behalf.
There are a number of opportunities for the church family to request prayer either by or with the Elders. Prayer requests submitted to the church are routinely shared with the Elders and we hold strongly to our commitment to pray for these requests individually and collectively. In addition, Currey Creek services routinely offer the opportunity for prayer with Elders and/or their wives during a time of response. Finally, more intimate opportunities to gather with Elders and pray specifically with individuals or families is available. We encourage you to take advantage of any and all of these opportunities. If you have a question or want to schedule a specific time to pray with the Elders, please contact the church office.
It is a profound privilege to serve as an Elder at Currey Creek and we are humbled by all of the things the Lord has done and is doing to bless our local church body. We seek to glorify our Lord in all we do, and engaging Him in prayer is vital to a healthy church body that is on mission for Christ’s Kingdom!
Your Brothers in Christ,
