The Elijah Project

    Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. - 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
    The Elijah Project is an inter-generational prayer ministry connecting adults and youth in our congregation through consistent, expectant prayer. Students and adults partner together in prayer, rejoicing and giving thanks for the highs, and giving comfort and encouragement during the lows. This year, while letters and digital communication will still be the primary method of encouragement and prayer requests, prayer partners will have opportunities to connect in person at two fellowship events and a service day. This ministry blesses youth and adults alike each year. 

    How does it work?
    Youth who sign up for the Elijah Project are paired with adults who register as prayer partners. The prayer partners are given contact information so they can communicate through cards and email throughout the school year. Adults are expected to write to students at least once per month. Students are encouraged to write back each time they receive a card or gift, but they are expected to send an update at least once per semester.

    When are the events?
    We hope prayer partners can plan to come together to one or more of the following events.

    Elijah Project Christmas Party – December 8


    Elijah Project Service Day – April 15

    Elijah Project Prayer Breakfast – May 21

    Registration is closed for the 2022-2023 school year. Please contact Laney Jones for information on other ways you can support Student Ministries with your prayers.
