Our organizations are the strength of this parish. Every organization has their own committees and they convene regularly for bible studies and other activities.
Prayer groups are the backbone of our church and prayer is the cornerstone of our faith life. Let me thank each and every prayer group leader for coordinating the prayer group meetings. We have three area prayer groups - South, North and Portland. They come together every month regularly and conduct bible studies at houses. Portland prayer group comes together for the Holy Communion service on 3rd Saturdays.
South Area Prayer Group
"For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them." - Matthew 18:20
The South Area Prayer Group, is a vibrant community within our church dedicated to the power of prayer and spiritual fellowship. We gather to seek God's presence, share our hearts, and support one another in our faith journeys. Led by our devoted leaders, we engage in enlightening Bible studies, heartfelt worship, and fervent intercession, nurturing our relationship with God and deepening our understanding of His Word. Whether you are a long-time member or new to our church family, we invite you to join us as we unite in prayer, strengthen our bond in Christ, and experience the transformative power of communal worship. Come and be a part of our warm and welcoming community as we grow together in faith and draw nearer to God. The South Area Prayer (SAP) group meets every 3rd Sunday of the month.
North Area Prayer Group
The North area prayer group is a vibrant group of 70+ families. There are meetings every month usually hosted at the home of one of the members. It is a time that all members actively take part in singing and discussions usually led by on of the members or our Achen. The topics have been different books of the Bible or practical applications of the Word in our day to day life. The lively discussions have been the highlight of NAP in the past many years .The potluck at the end of every session is a great time of fellowship and of course awesome food!
(We try to do some volunteer activities/ fun events every year. Some of our young members have helped organize a team for the SOS Free them 5K in the past years.)
The NAP group always loves to welcome new members in the area and help them integrate to our church family.
Portland Area Prayer Group
Portland Marthoma Prayer Group is a part of the Marthoma Church of Greater Seattle. The group is a close-knit community of around 30 families in the city of Portland, Oregon, who follow the teachings of Christ through the Marthoma Syrian Church tradition.
The community regularly comes together for worship, prayer, fellowship, and community outreach, and charitable events.
The group provides a spiritual anchor to its members and member families and provides a deeper connection to their religious and cultural roots.
