Ministry at Christ the Redeemer is built around what we have in common—our common life in Christ Jesus, the common table Christ invites his people to share, and the common prayers we offer by the Spirit through the Son to the Father.
Our common prayers flow from the recognition of prayer as more than an activity—it is a way of life. Through prayer, we share together in the ministries of CTR and in the common life of the Church in the world.
That’s why the value of prayer permeates all our ministries.
The Book of Common Prayer guides our devotional and liturgical life. The rubrics of the Daily Office—Morning, Noonday, and Evening Prayers, and Compline—sustain patterns of individual and gathered prayers. The rubrics for liturgy—especially in the prefaces and collects and prayers of the people—unite us in prayer in our worship services.
Prayer ministries of healing and intercession provide individuals and the ministry team with spiritual care. As we pray with each other, we find the Spirit of God working in and through us, bringing about God’s purposes in our lives.
All of our ministry teams include members who focus especially on upholding the team and the ministry in prayers and in encouraging the whole team in their prayers.
