We believe that nothing of eternal value happens without prayer and so this ministry is a part of everything we do here at Bay Pointe. In fact, prayer is one of our Core Values: Prayer is essential to an intimate relationship with God. It moves God’s heart, changes us, and unleashes the power of the Holy Spirit.” At the core, prayer is simply a conversation with God so everyone who is a follower of Jesus needs to make this a part of their daily life.
Prayer needs and requests are shared with the pastors, staff and some uniquely passionate volunteers who serve on our Prayer Chain and Prayer Team. Please email your prayer requests to email@example.com
Let us know if:
• You would like prayer support
• You know someone in need of a hospital visit
• You would like your request placed on the prayer chain
• You would like to be contacted for prayer

The Prayer Gathering
Wednesdays, 6:30 pm in The Prayer Room
You are invited to join the prayer team and other Bay Pointers on Wednesday evenings as they pray for our church, our country and God’s people across the globe. The group meets at 6:30 pm in The Prayer Room, adjacent to the auditorium. All who are led to pray are encouraged to attend.
There are people who are uniquely passionate about prayer, so because of this, we have many opportunities for people to unleash that passion. Some of the opportunities are described below:
• Bay Pointe Prayer Chain
Pray in your home for prayer requests received by the church. You will receive a weekly list of requests (updated during the week).
• Prayer Partner Team
One to four members of this team pray once a month before a Sunday service of their choice. Arrive 20 minutes before service and pray for the service – more details available.
• One on One Prayer Team
Pray after service, one on one with people desiring prayer. This team requires an interview with a facilitator of this ministry and a short training.
• Hospital Visitation
A pastor or volunteer will stop by to visit, listen and offer prayer to a person receiving medical care and family members if they are present. People requesting visitation in the hospital may range from people receiving short term care to long term care for terminal illness. Some visits are just time spent with a person that is not conscious and may have no one else to be with them or to pray over them.
For more information regarding prayer needs or how you can get involved, please contact Chris Bornshein, Pastoral Care Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Bay Pointe offices, 231.922.9882 ext. 109.
