What is Corporate Prayer?

What is Corporate Prayer?

  1. It is a focus on our relationship with God as opposed to a vending machine approach where we pray primary to get personal things from God.
  2. We spend time telling God what we like about Him and His character.
  3. We spend time in thanking Him for what he has done in our church as a whole.
  4. Sometimes we wait in silence before Him just soaking up His manifested presence.
  5. If we ask for things, the focus is on the big picture, the progress of our church as a whole:
    • leading people to a personal relationship with Jesus,
    • making faithful disciples of converts,
    • who will in turn, train other disciples,
    • so that the world is transformed into the character of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Pastor Philip Pelphrey appointed to Port Elizabeth UMC – July 1, 2014

Pastor Phillip PelphreyWe welcome Pastor Philip Pelphrey as Pastor here at Port Elizabeth United Methodist Church, Port Elizabeth, NJ effective Tuesday, July 1, 2014. He will serve our church in addition to his current appointment at Cumberland United Methodist Church, Millville, NJ.

Philip Pelphrey was born in Seattle, Washington, and grew up in a God-centered Christian family. At age 7 having been moved by God’s grace, Phil responded to a gospel altar call, and began to consciously trust Jesus as his Savior and Lord. As early as age 9, he began to teach younger children about Jesus through a creative puppet show. Having served the church in a pastoral role for over 28 years, he has by God’s grace equipped many lay people to effectively share their faith and in turn disciple others.

Pastor Phil will be leading his first Bible Study here on Tuesday, July 1, 2014 at 7:00pm.

On Sunday, July 6, 2014 at 11:00am, Pastor Phil will be administering Communion.
After the Sunday Service we will hold a welcome luncheon for Pastor Phil in John Boggs Hall.
