Prayer Web, Faith Web & Outcome Based Youth Ministry

December 24, 2021

Hope Lutheran is dedicated to birthing and growing lifelong faith in the youth, children and grandchildren of our congregation. We advocate and train our congregation to engage in building prayer webs, faith webs and pursuing outcome based youth ministry.

We currently have a group of dedicated prayer warriors who pray almost daily for all the children and youth who have been either baptized or confirmed in our congregation.

Also, if you would like to know more about faith webbing and outcome based youth ministry, here are some helpful links:

Our Church: “Not for Ourselves”

December 24, 2021

Hope Lutheran Church desires to live under the rule and reign of our Lord Jesus Christ, seeking His kingdom in all of life. In other words, we aim to be a “church not for ourselves” which is in contrast to maintaining and growing an organization or meeting members’ needs as a primary focus.

Prayer Opportunities!

August 1, 2018

Jesus said: “I am the true vine. You are the branches. Abide in me and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit unless it abides in the vine, neither can you unless you abide in me.” John 15:1, 4-5;
 
We want to be a church (gathering of believers who trust Jesus in all) that is well known for its powerful prayer. In history, significant seasons of prayer accompanied by a significant return to being almost daily in the Word of God, the Holy Scriptures and repentance oftentimes precede growth or renewal. Prayer is evidence of faith and trust in Jesus. If Christianity is having an alive relationship with Jesus, then prayer is the conversation.
 
 
We are grateful to all those who participate in our Hope prayer chain (led by Kathy L. now for several years), “praying” earnestly to our living God, Father Son and Holy Spirit on behalf of others. Sign up on the Hope website (www.hopelutheran.net) if you are not a part of the Hope prayer chain.
 
 
Here are some other prayer opportunities. All are welcome to any of these opportunities:
 
 
Friday evenings, 10 to midnight at Hope, weekly: A group of about ten people from several churches gather for prayer as led by Jesus and the Holy Spirit.
 
 
Tuesday mornings, 8 am, Cedar Hill Transformation Prayer network: We pray for businesses, schools, churches and civic entities (police, fire, government, economic development leadership) in Cedar Hill. Pastor Edsel sends out a weekly text on location. Anyone is welcome.
 
 
First Thursday, 7:30AM, every other month, Cedar Hill Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast (February, April, June, August, October, December), Cedar Hill Recreation Center: Under Mayor Rob Franke’s leadership, various people lead in prayer for the Cedar Hill community.
