Care & Prayer

Care & Prayer

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 Foundry is committed to caring for people’s needs.

Prayer

“My house will be a house of prayer.” Luke 19:46

God invites us to devote ourselves to prayer (Col 4:2), for the prayers of the righteous are powerful and effective at bringing about wondrous change in His kingdom (James 5:16). By praying for each other and with each other, we practice loving God and loving our neighbor. Click here to submit a prayer request; it will be shared with others in our congregation who have volunteered to pray.

Employment Assistance Ministries

The Employment Assistance Ministry (TEAM) exists to encourage and support individuals seeking employment. Our ministry is community-wide and not limited to Foundry members.

TEAM dinner meetings meet on select dates from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in the Parlor (Jones Road Campus). dates for our 2018 events will be posted soon.

We serve unemployed or underemployed individuals by:

  • Providing access to a wealth of resources including networking groups, online job search information, employers, and job leads
  • Hosting free quarterly meetings for job seekers and TEAM leaders to share job search strategies and success stories
  • Communicating by phone and e-mail to offer encouragement and support.
