One of the things that we want to see happen in the life of our church is people activating their faith every day of the week, not just when Sunday comes around, or when there is an "official church event/program" on. We also want people to see that they every day life can be packed full of opportunities to exercise their faith!
As part of that we are launching a new initiative that we are calling Prayer Circles. People get into groups consisting of others that are in a similar space in life. For example, you could join a mothers' prayer circle, and also a business owners' prayer circle if they are spaces that you occupy in your everyday life. The prayer circle then operates using Whatsapp (a messaging app that allows a group chat) and members can post prayer requests, praise reports, or ideas that they have that could inspire others in the group. Each circle will have a moderator to ensure that the group stays on topic.
The hope is that people find encouragement and support for their lives, but are also activated to pray for people who share similar experiences. Then there is the missional part of the groups where people can inspire each other to make full use of the everyday opportunities that they have.
If you would like to be part of a prayer circle, we will have sign ups for the next couple of Sundays at our Lift Experiences. We would love to see you there and get connected!
