THIS WEEKLY PHONE-IN PRAYER GROUP NO LONGER MEETS

As part of our emphasis on prayer we offer a weekly prayer group that's open to anyone, in any location. Read below for more about our latest prayer experience: The Reach High! Prayer group.

THIS WEEKLY PHONE-IN PRAYER GROUP NO LONGER MEETS

WHAT:  A weekly phone-in prayer group. [Stay safe while you pray with others!]


WHEN:  Wednesdays, 6:00 p.m. for 15 minutes  [Spend a brief time; seek a bunch of blessings]


WHO:  Whoever wants to join us - members of our church; members of other churches; members of NO church! This prayer group is non-denominational and a ministry whose focus is people. [NO sales pitch and a focus on people's needs. Remain silent throughout the meeting, if you choose.]


HOW:  Two Ways to Connect -


Method #1: Send a text message [THE RECOMMENDED METHOD IF YOU CAN SEND TEXT MESSAGES]


1. By 6:00 p.m. on Wednesdays, text the two words "call me" to 319-527-2705 (do NOT include the quotation marks in your text).

2. Within 30 seconds or so you should receive a call from our conference call service. Answer the call.

3. When the recorded voice asks you to enter an access code, enter 809985 followed by the # key.


That's it! You're on the call at no charge to you or the church.



Method #2: Make a call

  1. By 6:00 p.m. on Wednesdays, call 319-527-2705 (if you use a landline, you’ll need to dial a “1” before that number; cell phone users won’t have to add the “1”) We’ll begin promptly at 6:00 p.m. so please do what can to call in on time
  2. The recorded voice that answers your call will ask you for an access code. At that point, enter 809985 followed by the # key. 
  3. Several people have experienced difficulties connecting to calls using this method, so if you use it, we recommend that you begin calling in by 5:50 pm. to give yourself time for several attempts.

That’s it! At the end of the call, you’ll simply hang up. There is no charge to you or the church for the conference call service.


We invite you to join us for this weekly prayer experience from the comfort and safety of... 

wherever you will be on Wednesdays at 6:00 p.m.!
