The most important foundation for a church fellowship is prayer… Calvary Chapel Elk Grove places a high emphasis on not only gathering for prayer, but also to offer prayer to those who are in need. It is a high calling to go before The Lord to intercede. Below we’ve listed a few of the ways that you can join us, and get involved.
Church-Wide Zoom Prayer Meeting
Join us each Monday evening at 7 PM for our church-wide time of prayer.
Church members receive an email each week with the user and password for our private prayer Zoom meeting.
Corporate Prayer
Join us each Sunday Morning before 1st Service (at 7:30 AM) and before Wednesday Bible Study at 6 PM for a time of corporate prayer as we lift up the services, the message, and all those who attend.
Fasting & Prayer
Two times per year Calvary Chapel holds a voluntary week of fasting and prayer, including meeting each evening, with the last day including communion.

“The effective fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”
James 5:16
Prayer Ministries
Four times per year, Calvary has sign-ups for the various prayer ministries. Fill out the form if you are interested in being a part of this important ministry. If your sign-up request comes in after the cut-off date you will be signed up for the next quarter.

Emergency Prayer Chain

Each quarter, individuals sign-up to be notified to pray when an emergency request comes to the church, via telephone or email.
Text: When you sign up for the group text chain you will receive immediate notification of emergency prayer requests.
Email: When a prayer request is made via email, this is forwarded to our email prayer warriors.


Prayer Corps

Due to Covid we had discontinued passing out the written prayer request forms on Sunday mornings. This practice may be reintroduced soon. If you are a part of this ministry, each week the prayer requests are emailed to you.

Prayer Partners

This ministry is for two individuals committed to pray with and for one another.
Designed to not only help you to draw closer to the Lord by communing with Him; a prayer partner also helps in building a like-minded godly relationship with others, and remaining accountable to one another.
“Praying always with all prayer and supplication
