Prayer is one of the great gifts that God has given to us as His people, and we are growing as a church that takes this seriously, experiencing the greatness of God as we are transformed through the process of prayer.

Tim Keller rightly observes that, “Prayer is both conversation and encounter with God … We must know the awe of praising his glory, the intimacy of finding his grace, and the struggle of asking his help, all of which can lead us to know the spiritual reality of his presence.”

Because it is our goal to know Christ as best as we are able, prayer is a weekly practice in our Sunday Worship, a regular practice of the clergy throughout the week, and a daily practice in the lives of the whole church.

Therefore, prayer is an opportunity to allow others to share in your joys, struggles, doubts, heartache, and growth.  It would be an honor to pray for you so we warmly invite you share your prayer requests with us, so that we can be praying with you in whatever situation you’re in.

Prayer Requests: All prayer requests are to be emailed to, or you can call the Church Office at (215) 396‑1970. We are asking you to contact our prayer group through either of these two methods in order to give proper attention to all requests. Then, your prayer request will be emailed to our prayer teams.
