A Service of Healing & Prayer

A weekly Service of Prayer and Healing, led by our pastoral staff and prayer team, will be held each Sunday in building 105 classrooms 3 & 5 from 5:30 – 6:30 pm.  After a brief time of centering Scripture and prayer, participants will be able to receive prayer, laying on of hands and anointing for a specific need.  All who seek healing…come! “…for I am the Lord, your healer.” (Exodus 15:26b)


Sunday School Classes (9:45am)

I want to be whole…

This is a deep desire within each of us who, as humans, are “fearfully and wonderfully made” in the image of God. God invites us to “be holy… as I am holy”, and Jesus teaches that “If you abide in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” Jesus’ words release us from the treadmill of self-help efforts; he promises that abiding with him enables us to become "wholly" the person God created us to be, serving the purposes God intended for us. You are invited to a transforming season of a daily prayer practice of abiding in Christ. This is a 7-week small group study using Reuben Job's "Listen, Praying in a Noisy World". This study will be offered at both the 9:45 am Sunday school hour (beginning September 10) in the Disciple Room and also the Well on Wednesday night in the Conference Room of Building 101 (beginning September 13). Contact: Kathy Parker at .

Caring Ministries

Stephen Ministry

Everyone experiences storms in life - a difficult illness, the loss of a loved one, a divorce, the loss of a job. When these storms happen, they are much easier to navigate with support from a compassionate friend who has a good listening ear.  Stephen Ministers are people who help care for others caught up in the storms of life.  Perhaps you are in need of the caring, confidential, Christian relationship of a Stephen Minister.Stephen Ministers are people in our congregation who have the gift of a compassionate heart. They are trained and willing to help you through a crisis by listening attentively as you sort through difficult life events. What you say to them is held in complete confidence. You would meet with your Stephen Minister about once a week for an hour to talk about what is happening in your life. There is no charge. This is purely a ministry of Christian caring.If you would like a Stephen Minister or would like to become one, please contact Sharon Guyer: .

Mental Health Support Group

As Christians, we believe that we are called to love and support each other in community, to offer each other a place of safety and words of hope. We invite anyone who has experienced mental illness, who cares for someone who is suffering, or who just wants to know how to help, to join us on Sunday evenings in the Church Library at 5:30 p.m. Contact Doug and Katherine Kubel, 919-967-9564 or .


The Shemaiah Group

"For it is God who is at work in you, inspiring both the will and the deed for His own chosen purpose." Philippians 2:13

God calls us to talk with him, to be in conversation with him. Prayer is how we do that. When we go to God in prayer, God always hears us. Yet, many times we need the support of others to pray with us and for us, to help us find our way, to beseech God for healing, or to bring comfort to those who are mourning. There are as many reasons for prayer as there are people who have needs.

Recognizing this need for community prayer, Christ Church uses our Prayer Team to lift up the needs of individuals, our church, the community, and our world.  Requests come into the church through cards filled out in worship on Sunday morning, through phone calls, through requests made in person, & through requests in an email. With the permission of the person requesting prayer, the prayer need is then sent to the members of the prayer team by a pastor, and the prayers are lifted up by the team.  The team meets on Wednesday mornings at 11:00 am in the library.  If you'd like to join the prayer team or learn more about the group, please contact Sharon Guyer ( ) or Pat Horton ( ).

If you have a prayer request, you may send it electronically to Pastor David Goehring, call him at the office (969-8820), or simply fill out a prayer request card that can be found in the pew racks.  The card may be dropped in the offering plate or given to a pastor at the end of worship. Be sure to indicate whether your request is for the pastors only or for the prayer team as well.
