Prayer Service

Soaking Prayer Service Tuesday, April 17,  7:00 pm. A soaking prayer service is simply a time of waiting and listening to God. Those being soaked in prayer simply sit, move or stand wherever they want in the sanctuary. Quiet, contemplative music will play throughout. As people quiet their hearts and minds, the prayer team stands or moves about the room "soaking the participants in silent prayer." There is no verbal or physical interaction with participants for the full 45 minutes. The participants listen to God and the "soakers" listen for how the Holy Spirit is guiding them to pray. This is a great time to be quiet with God and know that others are praying for you to receive from God as you listen. Please join us!

Prime Timers Lunch and Learn

Pastor Lou will be our guest speaker. In 37 years of ministry, she has had 7 appointments, each of which has been very different in setting, membership and demographic. Each setting/church has offered insights and growth opportunities that have been a blessing and a gift to her. Churches may not realize that they "grow" preachers. You make significant contributions to your clergy's ability, insight and skill. Pastor Lou will share some of those gifts during “The Things I’ve Learned”. What would you like your pastors to learn from you? A light lunch will be served; a free-will donation will be collected. Sign up on the Connection Card or stonybrookchurch.net/upcoming-events. The deadline is Sunday, September 17.

A Service of Healing and Wholeness

The service is open to the entire community and the speaker will be Pastor Lou. She will share her family’s story of healing related to her father’s history of chronic depression and attempted suicide. Pastor Lou and Pastor Nikki will lead in the healing prayers and preside for the Sacrament of Holy Communion with assistance from the Stonybrook Healing Ministry team. Plan to come to the service to have the community pray for your special needs and to offer prayers of intercession for friends and family. We know that God works in mysterious and powerful ways when the people of God gather in prayer. Healing can begin, restoration can happen, new insights come and God’s people will celebrate the presence of a living God. A free-will offering will be taken for National Suicide Prevention Week, which is September 10-16.
