PRAYER CHAIN

Prayer makes a difference because God listens when you pray.

At Covenant prayer is part of everything we do and we want to pray for you. Whether your need is physical, emotional, financial, relational or spiritual, we can pray together and God will act.
Individuals throughout Covenant are invited to pray for special needs that arise in the body of Covenant. If you would like to pray for others or if you are in need of prayer, contact Judith Caldwell at 239.597.3464.

ELDER CARE AND SHEPHERDING

SHEPHERDS

The Shepherding Elders and Lay Shepherds meet on the first Thursday of each month primarily to pray for you. We consider this a great privilege and calling. Let us know how we can pray for you.

The Pastors/Elders will pray with you at the hospital before surgery and during a crisis. Please call Judy Caldwell at 239-273-6785 (Prayer Chain) if you or a loved one is in the hospital or are in need. If admitted to a hospital, please let the hospital know you attend Covenant Church of Naples PCA , so we know you are there and can visit and pray for you.
Covenant Church of Naples Elders are elected by the congregation to provide spiritual leadership, guidance, governance, and encouragement. Some serve in the areas of governance and oversight while others serve as congregational shepherds who personally minister to 8-10 Covenant families. These Shepherds develop personal relationships with each family member to provide guidance for spiritual growth, support, resourcing, and prayer.  
Shepherds minister to Covenant families through:
  • Personal contact
  • Regular prayer
  • Resourcing families as necessary within the body and with other Covenant ministries
  • Hospital visitation and emergency aid
  • And, if necessary, restoration to the body
