Prayer Ministries

PRAYER MINISTRY is an opportunity for Jamieson members to practice their faith in their daily lives. As disciples of Christ, we want to nurture and support each other and our Church. There are many ways for us to show our love for one another, but Intercessory Prayer—praying on behalf of others—is one of the most powerful. Individuals who volunteer for this ministry receive prayer requests for persons who are a part of or connected to the Jamieson Family and for upcoming church events and projects. Team members commit to pray on behalf of these brothers and sisters in Christ and our church services and activities. Jesus is our model for intercessory prayer. He was an intercessor while He was here on earth. He prayed for the sick and for His disciples, and He even prayed for us when He interceded for all those who would come to believe in Him. What a privilege it is to come to the throne of God Almighty with our prayers for others and for our church.  There is a Prayer Request tab on this website to submit your requests to the Prayer Team.  For information about monthly prayer meetings, and prayer groups, contact Elaine Senz, 434-374-2649, elaine331va@hotmail.com

The Clarksville Prayer Box Ministry, an interdenomination group of women in the community, are providing prayer boxes at Meadowview Terrace Nursing Home, the YMCA Complex, and the Clarksville Police Station.  With each public prayer box, there will be blank forms for people to use to submit their praises and concerns.  The boxes will be collected weekly and prayed over by the Community Prayer Team.  People will be able to choose to have only the team pray for the request or it can be shared with local congregations.  Our community needs are important to us and more importantly to GOD.  If you would like to become a member of this Prayer Ministry, please contact Elaine Senz at 434-374-26

Next Gen Ministry for Children and Youth

Jamieson is currently looking to hire a Youth Director to lead the Next Gen Ministries and to develop a full program for our children and youth.

Food Pantry:  Please remember to bring in Food Pantry items and leave them on the back pew near the kitchen.  Jamieson usually collects the first Sunday of every month, but donations are welcome any time.  Special needs in August are canned fruit:  Pears, peaches, pineapple, applesauce.

Operation Christmas Child:  We will gather items for our OCC shoeboxes.  These donations change lives and bring children, families and communities into the Kingdom of God.  Information on items and a collection box are in the back of the sanctuary.

Options for Giving:  See the Giving tab on our website for full information.

Save your labels:  The UMW collects  Boxtops for Education for Clarksville Elementary.  A basket is on the UMW bookshelves in the back of the sanctuary.

Mission Dollars:  Each Sunday, we are asked to place $1.00 bills in the offering for a specific mission each Sunday.  

Backpack Buddies: The start of the school year also signals the start of our Backpack Buddies program.  Jamieson currently has over 30 volunteers who work on a rotating schedule to help pack, deliver, and distribute food bags at the elementary school each Friday afternoon.  The bags contain weekend meals for children from food insecure homes.  Please pray for this program and the children and families that it touches.  If you are interested in serving or learning more about the program, please contact Elaine Senz, 374-2649.

Lunch Buddies:  Clarksville Elementary School needs lunch buddies.  For more information or to sign up, contact the School Counselor at 374-8668.
