Prayer & Care Ministry

We believe and expect God to act powerfully in response to prayer.  We also believe that God has the power to change people’s lives.  Therefore we are intentional about prayer and have a dedicated prayer team that provides opportunities to connect with you for prayer.  

Prayer appointments are available for healing prayer, for a hospitalization or illness, for a new home, for travel, or for any of life’s many challenges.  When you come to worship with us and have someone in your life that needs prayer or are in need of prayer yourself, you will have an opportunity to pray with the prayer team at the end of each worship service.  We also collect prayer requests on Sunday mornings that our prayer team will lift up in prayer when they come together on Tuesday mornings. 

Another opportunity to pray for one another is to sign up to receive our weekly Prayer & Care Email.  To sign up, email  

Our Prayer Shawl Ministry combines a love for knitting and crocheting with supporting those going through transition or a difficult time.  This Ministry meets once per month. For additional information, contact Mary Hulst at

If you have a prayer request or would like more information, please email or call the church office at (616) 874-0400.

Our Vision

We envision River Rock Church as a community that practices Radical Love to welcome and introduce people to Jesus, that embodies Real Life together as we support each other into deeper relationships with Him, and that flourishes with our Roots in Christ to grow into impacting God’s world.
