Intercessory Prayers are Rising – here are a few ways to participate:

Prayer Walks – The first one is planned for Saturday, April 4 at 11:00 a.m. Meet at the Square Mile Garden, 3908 SW 6th, and pray & walk for the various ministries working in this part of our city.  This event postponed due to shelter-in-place order by city and county authorities.

Personal Prayer - Do you have a concern or situation that needs to go before the Throne? Beginning April 5 (postponed to April 19 or later due to shelter-in-place order), intercessory pray-ers will be available after each Sunday morning service in the church narthex (behind the Sanctuary) to pray with worshippers for their needs.

Prayer Room – Access to the prayer room in the back of the main parlor has been extended to allow pray-ers to come 15 minutes early to pray for the service they attend in advance as well as during the worship service.

Prayer Invite – You are invited to join an ecumenical prayer group that meets every 3rd Monday evening of the month from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. at Hope and Choice, 1500 S. Taylor. This group prays together for various needs in the churches and in Amarillo.


Join us in one or all of these prayer opportunities – after all, it’s the most you can do!

Alzheimer’s Support/Awareness Group for Caregivers
Coordinated by Jan Hargrave and Jim Currie and pastored by Rev. Joan Gaines, this group meets to share joys, frustrations, and to give each other support and encouragement. Rev.

She has pastored churches in Nebraska and Hereford and was also the Chaplain at BSA Hospital for six years.  She is currently the part-time pastor of Covenant Presbyterian Church. If you or anyone you know could benefit from this group, know that you don't have to face the challenges alone. You can meet with this group in Wilkins Parlor at the church on Mondays at noon.
