PRAYER MINISTRY REQUEST: INCOMING PATHWAYS
THE PRAYER CHAIN: The front line for urgent "day and night prayer" requests. The names and phone numbers of key prayer chain leaders are on the first page of the TCF phone directory. For online requests please email Prayer at Trail.
THE CHURCH OFFICE: With your permission, prayer requests phoned into the church office are passed on to the prayer chain. Those messages are also placed on a group email and immediately sent out to the prayer chain and to all the pastors and elders. You may also request that only the Pastors receive your prayer request.
THE PRAYER ROOMS: Prayer team members are available at the front of the church after each service, and in the prayer room located on the right side at the front of the sanctuary. They are there to intercede; to seek the presence of God on behalf of others. They are ready and willing to agree with you in prayer for any reason or spiritual need, cry with you, rejoice with you or just come along side to encourage you.
THE PRAYER SLIPS: Every Sunday bulletin has a prayer request slip attached. These can be filled out in time to drop in the offering, or can be handed to an usher and that person will get them to their destination. These will be reviewed on the same morning for "emergency" situations, and then compiled on Monday to be distributed for prayer. The compiled lists are used only during the week they are submitted. We welcome those requests that are renewed week after week for this is how we get to be a part of the ongoing trials and victories in your lives.
PRAYER MINISTRY: OUTGOING PATHWAYS
BODY LIFE PRAYER: In many ways, the prayer request slips are the "heartbeat" of our prayer ministry. On Monday, the compiled list of all prayer requests is sent out via email to the members of the prayer chain, to persons who have requested and been approved to be intercessors on the "internet prayer connection", and a "hardcopy" is placed in every pastors mail box. This is how we keep our finger on the pulse of the "body life" here at TCF.
PASTORAL PRAYER: The first hour to hour and a half of each staff meeting (Thursday mornings) is spent in prayer. Each pastor brings their copy of the compiled prayer requests, to which one page of TCF phone directory listings has been added. If your name is in the TCF phone directory you will receive a note on the month during which your name will come up asking you to let us know any special things you would like to have prayed for. The pastors and the elders who participate in that meeting take turns praying "around the table" for the prayer requests and for any other needs we are aware of.
SPECIAL INTEREST PRAYER MINISTRIES: Ongoing prayer for specific ministry projects are coordinated by the leaders of each ministry. Intercessors for outreach groups that minister at the Medford Gospel Mission Men’s Shelter, Medford Gospel Mission Women’s and Children’s Shelter, assisted care facilities, ministry to the incarcerated, Child Evangelism Fellowship and other local ministries gather the third Wednesday of each month in the Shaw Chapel. Intercessors for mission teams that are going out for short term projects or in the field long term gather the first Monday of each month at the Nokes' home in Eagle Point.
WORSHIP BASED PRAYER: There is a group gathering in the adult classroom near the front office from 8:30-9:30 each Sunday. This is an open Bible, worship based, time of prayer. All are welcome to join.
BECOMING A "PRAYER WARRIOR": You may contact Darrel Wiltrout to find out what the expectations for being a member of the prayer chain are, how you could be included as an intercessor on the internet prayer connection or for information on how to connect with one of the special interest prayer gatherings.
