Send us a prayer request!

  • Prayer will be strategic to guide the progress of the ministry.
  • We will use prayer teams and initiatives to encourage fellowship and serving.
  • The ministry will be prayer centered!
  • The SWAP prayer ministry is foundational to everything we do as we seek God’s direction in developing our focus. In order to maximize the prayer ministry we are forming a prayer team of individuals who will receive prayer requests by email and commit to praying for them. If you would like to be a part of this vital ministry we invite you to let us know by checking the Seniors Ministry (SWAP) box on the GCF Volunteer Interest Form.


  • A visitation ministry will help insure no one stands alone.
  • Mobilizing seniors to care about and or visit people from GCR
  • To assist our church family at Grace to help them feel loved and connected, sometimes is necessary. We would like to have a team prepared to do visitation as needed as well as knowing if there is a need to have visitation.
