Prayer and Care Ministries at Autumn Ridge Church
Our desire is that prayer supports each individual and all of the ministries of Autumn Ridge Church. Each year begins with a prayer week and we offer Sunday School classes, retreats and workshops to instruct us in walking in the presence of God.
"Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven."
As our church increases in number, so does the need for care. Currently we have a Visitation Team that meets together on Thursday mornings at 9:00am for a time of devotion before going out to visit those who are in the hospital, care centers or are in their homes but not able to get out and about as they used to.
God is consistent in His plan for each of our lives. He would not give us inborn talents, temperaments, spiritual gifts, and all sorts of life experiences and then not have us use them!
Have you ever considered that God may have prepared you for serving in Care and Prayer? We will be happy to help you discover if this, or some other area of service, is right for you.
Contact Pastor Karen Anderle if interested in any of the eight ministries listed below:
This team meets on Wednesdays from 11:15am - 12:15pm to pray for the ministries and leadership of Autumn Ridge Church, the community, country, and world.
Saturday and Sunday Prayer Teams
Do you enjoy praying and have confidence in the power of prayer? If you do, we would like to invite you to join Autumn Ridge Church's Saturday and Sunday Prayer Teams. We will meet at the cross in the Sanctuary at 4:30pm on Saturdays and 8:00am on Sundays. We begin by praying together and then we divide up to pray throughout the church. If you have any questions, please contact Jordan Meyer at or Karen Anderle.
This team will help visit the people who come to Rochester from out of town. We get many requests from our congregation as well as from patients themselves.

This is a care/prayer network on CCB where prayer concerns are communicated as requested by the congregation.
This team meets on Thursday mornings to visit folks recovering at home, and members who are no longer able to come to services.
On the third Thursday of each month we are hosting a devotion time at Shorewood. We need help transporting folks, assisting with worship, and more people to visit with our members and guests who come.
