The Katy Church
Katy has a rich history of prayer that goes way back to before most of us were a part of The Katy Church.
We believe that some of those prayers have birthed much of the Kingdom fruit that we are presently experiencing. We have the honor and the responsibility of keeping the flame of prayer burning as the city church.
Two distinct ways that we foster and cultivate an atmosphere of prayer in unity centered around Christ is through:
We invite pastors, pastoral staff and ministry leaders to our weekly prayer meeting every Wednesday at noon at The Great Southwest Prayer Center located on the campus of Grace Fellowship UMC in Katy TX. (location map)
We invite the city to three citywide prayer gatherings a year:
PASTORS PRAYER SUMMIT
Each March at Crier Creek all pastors and ministry leaders are invited to come away for a 24 hour retreat which includes great food, a comfortable retreat setting, connection, and morever worship and prayer together as the city pastors. www.houstonprayersummit.com
NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER & FIRE ON THE ALTAR
Each first weekend in May we kickoff 3 days of night and day prayer with a huge gathering at the Leonard E. Merrell Center interceding for our country and leaders. That is followed by FIRE on the ALTAR running Thursday, Friday and Saturday with many churches taking timeslots to lift worship and prayer for our families, the lost, the church, our city, America and the nations of the world. www.katyprays.org
GLOBAL DAY OF PRAYER
Praying with the nations for the nations each Pentecost Sunday! We rotate this gathering at various host churches in the city. www.globaldayofprayer.com
We invite you to visit THE GREAT SOUTHWEST PRAYER CENTER, a community prayer room located on the campus of Grace Fellowship UMC located at 2655 S. Mason Road. This place of prayer was consecrated by the city pastors on January 17th, 2007. This is where the city is coming together to build 24/7 night and day worship and prayer in the city. www.thegreatsouthwestprayercenter.org
On behalf of THE KATY CHURCH, I welcome you, One of the prayers we lift to the Lord on a regular basis is that He will send more life-giving churches and ministries to Katy to help us reach this growing area with the good news of Jesus Christ. Please know that we will pray and work with you in any way we can to facilitate the fulfillment of God’s purposes for you and your church.
We meet each Wednesday for prayer from noon until 1pm at the KATY PRAYER ROOM located in the Midway Shopping Center on south side of Highway 90 (where Avenue D deadends) in downtown Katy, Texas.
We’d love to have you join us any time you can. Our purpose is to pray for one another and to pray for spiritual transformation to come to our city.
You don’t “join” the KATY CHURCH; we are very loosely organized and voluntarily come together for mutual support and prayer for the city.
