PRAYER
In prayer we are raising up disciples of Christ who know His purposes and see His power.

At The Vail Church we believe that prayer is the way that we fellowship with God and also how He ministers to us.  We want to model, teach, equip, and bring comfort to our church body in prayer and through prayer.  We believe what James 5:16 teaches which says that the prayers of the righteous are powerful and effective and that when we confess and pray for one another that healing can begin.  Jesus modeled for us the importance of prayer in times alone with the Father and also taught His disciples how to pray for those in need.  We desire to live in this way as Jesus taught us.

CARE
We abide in the love of Christ by extending His love and care to others. 

We are called not only to love God, but to express that love by caring for others. When we pray for each other, bear one another’s burdens, spend time together, and walk with each other through the events of life, we demonstrate God’s love to the world. Here are some of the ways The Vail Church is committed to caring for people’s needs.

Housing Connections

We have created a form (click this link) to help connect landlords and renters.

If you would like to advocate for your community, church and leaders, email us about how you can get involved with the Prayer & Care ministry. There is a direct email module at the bottom of this page.
Hospitalizations

Know a member of The Vail Church who is in the hospital? Let us know, use this clickable link.

Meals Ministry

At no cost to the recipient, The Meals Ministry team prepares and delivers meals to members of our church family who are recovering from medical issues, personal crisis, or loss, or have newborn infants. 

Meal Coordinator should receive a 48 hour notice before starting that first meal and Meal Schedules usually last 1-2 weeks with one meal every OTHER day (exceptions can apply). 

Meal requests are made through submitting a care request through this clickable link. 

Shepherd Care

Shepherd Care is a mission of encouragement and companionship to struggling members of The Vail Church family. Armed with prayer, kind words, attentive ears and a willingness to reach out to others, Shepherds make a real difference in lives. Each individual is paired with a Shepherd who commits to contact them on a regular basis. Shepherd’ Care participants are not professional counselors.

Click here to let us know of someone who needs a shepherd, or to become a shepherd yourself.

Benevolence 

The purpose of our Benevolence Ministry is to draw people closer to Christ by helping meet their practical needs during a financial crisis or transition according to biblical directives and fiscal constraints.

Welcome Home Baby 

The Children’s Ministry prepares and delivers special gifts to welcome the newest arrivals into our church Family. In addition, they can connect families to the Meals Ministry and provide information about our Children’s Ministry, Baby Dedications and raising your child in the church. Please contact Heather Bergquist at heather@thevailchurch.com.

Memorials

We have the opportunity to bless families by helping with the general plans and location of a memorial service of a loved one. If you are in need of memorial assistance, please complete this form and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

“Then they will reply, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison and didn’t do anything to help you?’ Then he will answer, ‘I assure you that when you haven’t done it for one of the least of these, you haven’t done it for me.'”
