LIFE CARE MINISTRIES
LIFE CARE MINISTRIES
The prayer life of our church is an important part of who we are as the Body of Christ at St. Peter’s. Scripture is filled with encouragements to pray. God has promised to answer every prayer. So together we lift up to the Lord the prayers of God’s people. Your need for prayer may come in different forms:
Confidential Prayers – email prayer chain - Maybe you need prayer, but would prefer that the nature or content of your prayer not be shared with everyone. Each prayer warrior in the chain knows not to share the details of these prayers with anyone except the Lord. These prayers can be about anything that you desire prayer for and would prefer to remain confined to a small group of prayer warriors.
Printed Prayers –“A Time to Pray” - These are printed weekly and adjusted as life dictates. These prayers are often for healing, praise for anniversaries or birthdays, new birth, or even for those who have gone to be with the Lord. If you would like a hard copy mailed to you or a digital copy emailed, please contact Julie Terry.
Spoken Prayers – in worship - Prayers are spoken in worship weekly. Each weekend of the month, in the non-communion service the “new” prayer requests are spoken aloud in worship. If the prayer is for an ongoing issue, it will be kept on the Time to Pray, and prayed aloud in worship on a rotation. These prayers can also include praises for anniversaries, births, significant birthdays, or even for those who have gone to be with the Lord.
Urgent Prayer – speak with a pastor directly and soon – for those prayer requests that are urgent and critical, it is helpful to speak with a pastor. After regular hours, call the church at (812) 372-1571 and press “1” when the recording comes on. You will be transferred to the pastor on call.
Prayer Before Surgery - To arrange for prayer before surgery, contact Julie Terry.
When you or a family member are unable to come to worship, we can come to you for visits, prayer, and to share communion at your residence. Our team makes more than 500 visits monthly to our shut-ins and friends.
To arrange a visit, or to become a part of the team, please contact Julie Terry.
We have team members who visit the local hospital and hospice everyday of the week, checking in on and praying with our members and friends who are in need. Whether you are sick, injured, or recovering from a surgery, we want you to know that we are with you. To arrange a visit from our team, or to join the team, please contact Julie Terry.
Illnesses come and go. A diagnosis of cancer changes things for families for a lifetime. There are more needs for a family impacted by cancer that can be ongoing. Our Journey of Hope is a ministry that seeks to walk alongside families impacted by cancer.
If you or your family have been impacted by cancer, or if you would like to become a member of the team, please contact us at 812-372-1571.
Stephen Ministers are people trained to walk alongside others through seasons of turbulence. They are steady, confidential, calm, friends who are able to listen compassionately and pray confidently for those who are in need. They do not judge, nor do they counsel, guide or direct. Most of us have plenty of people trying to tell us what to do. Stephen Ministers provide comfort and support while you are going through challenging times, for as long as you need them.
