First Baptist has an active prayer ministry. Each Wednesday night at 6:45 PM there is a Prayer Service and Bible Study. During the prayer service the names of all those on the prayer list are read, and they are lifted up in prayer.
The church has a prayer chain that is activated in times of crisis or special need.
The deacons lead a time of prayer each Sunday morning at 9:00 AM. This prayer time is held in the sanctuary in the small room located to the right of the pulpit area. (It is on the same side of the sanctuary as the piano.)
There is a prayer walk the second Tuesday of each month at Chester High School. The prayer walk begins at 5:00 PM. All are invited to come and join in this time of prayer for the students, teachers, coaches, administrators, and staff at Chester High School. Also, there is a prayer walk at the church on the second Wednesday of each month. Meet at 5:00 PM in the Children’s Activity Room to walk throughout the buildings and grounds to pray for all the ministries of the church.
