Powell United Methodist Church is a community bound together by faith based in part on active prayer life in our community. The mission of the Prayer Ministry is “to develop and support programs that provide a deep-rooted realization and actualization of the power of prayer in the lives of individuals and the body of the church through connectional prayer.” Prayer connects us as children of God and changes us. The Prayer Ministry includes weekly email prayer connections and prayer resources in the library. We also offer leadership development opportunities for individual growth and for community growth such as Spiritual Retreats and special prayer opportunities offered throughout the year. Below are listed a few upcoming and ongoing ways to be in intentional prayer. To be included in the Prayer Ministry, please e-mail

Silent Retreat: Come and experience God’s loving and healing presence through a time of intentional silence, prayer, and listening, Sat, March 18, 9am-1pm, led by Kim La Rue and Pastor Katya. This set-aside time invites you to the time of connecting and listening to God in silence and prayer. During the hours of the retreat, the sanctuary, the outside labyrinth, and the prayer chapel will be available to walk around and be in prayer. Bring your Bible, a book or a journal, anything that will help you stay connected to God in silence. Snacks and drinks will be provided. A time of reflection at the end will be provided. Register HERE.
The Prayer Box has moved! In 2020, when we couldn’t enter the building, but we still had prayers to pray, we created an outdoor prayer box which has been near the historic bell leading into the church. It has now moved a little east of that next to the labyrinth. Prayer cards are there for you to use and then you can drop them into the box. We will add them to the prayers we pray during the week.
