C.P. and Helen Claud Memorial Prayer Chapel

Prayer Chapel



The C.P. and Helen Claud Memorial Prayer Chapel was dedicated in 2007 as a place for personal and corporate prayer at Bethia UMC.  Both Helen and CP were long-time members of the Bethia Church family and prayer was an important part of their faith journey.  Helen told the congregation (in what would be her final address to the congregation) just a few years before her death, that every brick in the Bethia Church building was prayed over and her final gift to Bethia Church was to be used to provide a place of prayer for all who would, and could come to pray. It is located in the room across from the double entrance doors of the sanctuary and is open daily during regular church hours.  It is currently a place for a weekly prayer service on Wednesday mornings, and it is the place of prayer for all Intercessory Prayer Team members to come each week to pray for requests submitted from every worship service on the blue prayer cards located in sanctuary pew racks. The Prayer Chapel is also a place where persons can meet with a Stephen’s Minister following every worship service for personal prayer. It has also been used for small weddings and other special worship celebrations.
