Prayer & Study Groups

Independent Presbyterian Church

Intercessory Prayer Group

The group meets every Tuesday at 11:00 am in the chapel to pray for our members, their families and their friends. When prayers are completed for the day, the group send cards to members and friends in special or difficult circumstances. Anyone is welcome to come and to pray with this group. No invitation is necessary. Just come.

Team Captain: Alice Christenson

Centering Prayer Group

Centering Prayer focuses on deepening our relationship with the living Christ through interior silence. It facilitates a movement from more active modes of prayer into a receptive prayer of resting in God. Centering Prayer is meant to enrich and complement other forms of prayer, not to exclude or replace them. Centering Prayer meets on Tuesdays from 12:00 -12:30 pm and on Wednesdays at 5:00 pm in the prayer room near Rev. Brian Lays' office on the ground floor. For information, contact Kathy Thomson.

Grace Groups

Grace Groups are the foundation of IPC’s small group ministry. The groups meet in members’ home across the city, at the church and in downtown office buildings on different days for six weeks in the fall and during Lent. Besides growing in faith and the understanding of God’s word, the participants are drawn into closer community with other members of IPC. Learn more about Grace Groups.
