Come join this fast pace, energetic group of faithful people who serve in God's house each month. Every week a new team comes in on Sunday, either for first service to serve the church body with wonderful foods to eat. Our first service teams will put together a choice of three different items such as a croissant sandwich with egg, cheese and bacon or sausage. They will also have another egg dish that is gluten free and one more breakfast type item to offer. It is a great chance to mingle with other people and make new friends along the way. If you would like to be a part of a fun team please come and connect with one of our café workers and we will get you started!
Adopt A Block
Third Saturday of the month 10am-1pm location varies
Working together to build a strong community through love and prayer, providing food, clothing and hope. Adopt-A-Block Ministry is dedicated to reaching out to our community and our neighborhoods. We have prayer, praise and fellowship on our block in the Crownbrook Neighborhood. We sponsor food drives, prayer walks and holiday fellowships for the children. The members of this ministry take their responsibility very seriously and sincerely desire to be a blessing in our community.
Minister Fanny Marone
We are looking for committed, dependable and flexible people who have a heart for the city and Crownbrook neighborhood. We want to see souls being saved, intercessors who will pray, people who are outgoing and have a passion to minister to those in need. Your availability for this is once a month on the 3rd Saturday from 10:00am to 1:00pm.
Perhaps you would like to join us in Crownbrook or even start your own Adopt-A-block, where you live or another demographic that God has laid on your heart. If so, we are committed to training, mentoring and providing you with any assistance you may need to get started. If you have a desire to impact your community in a tangible way for the Kingdom of God, this may be the ministry for you. If you are trying to figure out where you might be able to "plug in" at House of Prayer Church, talk to us about making the commitment to be part of our team.
"Those from among you shall build the old waste places. You shall raise up the foundations of many generations; and you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach."
"The Restorer of Streets to Dwell in" Isaiah 58:12 (NIV)
Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter- when you see the naked, to clothe him, and not turn away from your own flesh and blood? Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard. Then you will call, and the Lord will answer; you will cry for help and He will say: Here am I. If you do away with the yoke of oppression, with the pointing finger and malicious talk, and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday. The Lord will guide you always; He will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and He will strengthen your fame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail. Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins and will raise up the age-old foundations; you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings.
