Purple Stride 1

Dear CECF Family & Friends,

I recently decided to participate in PurpleStride. Please consider joining my team, Phil's Friends; the more the merrier!

Participating in an event that raises money for the fight against pancreatic cancer is something I know touches your life in some way. It touched me personally when I was diagnosed in November 2012 with this disease. The money we raise will advance research, support patients, and create hope for the pancreatic cancer community. We need your help so please do anything you can - join my team, register as an individual or make a donation on my behalf.

Thank you so much for all of your support and I look forward to seeing you at PurpleStride-Cincinnati on September 24, 2016.


Phillip Woolfolk, 3 year 9 month Survivor

Prayer Conf Call

We at Christ Emmanuel sincerely believe in the power of prayer. We invite you to pray with us on our  Prayer Conference Call which is truly empowering, life-changing, and a dynamic way to start your day; every Wednesday morning at 6:30am.  There is great prayer, and revelation given by God during this prayer time. Every call, God uses us to pull down strongholds, praying for healing, deliverance and salvation and to unify God's people for His glory!  We open this special time to everyone; all youth and adults to join us as we encourage, uplift, and pray for one another, the churches, and the nation! We are armed and dangerous against the kingdom of darkness. This is a way to be on one accord and receive a head start on the enemy early as we rise in the morning to give God glory, honor, and His due praise!

Dial in on: 712-432-3011

Conference Code: 309071

prayer walking 2016Join the prayer walking team as we pray and walk and interact with the residents of the community of Walnut Hills.

The Prayer Walk begins at 1 o'clock p.m. from the church at 2324 May Street on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month.

Praying On-Site With Insight

In hundreds of cities around the world, God is helping Christians to pray as they pass through the streets of their communities. We've come to use the word "prayerwalking" to describe this kind of on-site intercession.

As you prayerwalk, your prayers extend beyond your own concerns, focusing directly on the needs of others and opening yourself to see them with God's eyes and heart.

Pray with God's Spirit.

Invite the Spirit of God to accompany you, guiding your steps and your words.
Be attentive during moments of silence, allowing the Holy Spirit to help you see with His eyes and pray in accordance with His heart.
Address God directly when contending with evil or its aftermath. Ask God to redeem people as he restrains the enemy.

Pray with God's Word.

Read Scripture aloud. God breathed it and loves to bless it.
Express God's thoughts in your own words.
Carry Scripture with you. Use a small Bible, or note cards.
Choose a particular verse or theme as a base for your prayers throughout one day's prayerwalk. Use another to launch your prayers the next day, and so on.

Pray with Purpose.

Pray for the present-hour needs of people and places that you see.
Sketch a map to focus on select streets and homes.
Pray quietly. You can be on the scene without making one.
In confidence of God's unfolding purpose which includes your preparation prayer, don't look to initiate gospel conversations during your prayerwalk. Pray for God to open doors of communication soon.
Explain what you are doing to inquirers: "We're praying God's blessing on the neighborhood. Are there specific ways we can pray for you or others?"
Be persistent. Try prayerwalking the same areas near your work, school or home in a regular way. You'll often find that your prayers deepen and your concern and awareness of God's heart for people increases.

Jump right in get involved and make a difference along the way. We would love to see you come walk and pray with us.
