The Oquawka House of Prayer in Oquawka, Illinois is located at 111 S. Sixth Street, behind the Oquawka bank. The church building has been present for over 30 years. Its ministry is lead by Pastor Betty Moede. Her experience spans the test of time, covering both the triumph and tragedy of human life experience, both as family members and as individuals.
Once there you will notice the friendly individuals in a casual and relaxing atmosphere. No stuffed suits, nor prissy members full of themselves, but genuine every day, extraordinary people, just like you. No one is excluded nor rejected, treated as an outcast or as someone who has more or less than another. Newcomers are only beloved family members we have not yet met, but it is our privilege to do so. We welcome you, whether you come for a visit or to stay.
House of Prayer members enjoy a contemporary style of worship, with an upbeat balance of both modern and classic hymns refreshed for this generation. We hold to the fundamentals of our roots, in both worship and in the teachings that come across the pulpit, and still adapt to our changing world without compromising our integrity.
Needing prayer? Come be a part of our active prayer ministry. You can join right in and pray with us or share your prayer needs with one or more members of the prayer team. Want more privacy with your prayer requests? Call our prayer line at (309) 867-6767 and leave a message. Your needs will be kept confidential and be thoroughly prayed through.
Looking for a more casual way of meeting the members of our ministry outside the walls of a church? Please join us on the fifth Sunday (in a month that has five Sundays) for our Pot Blessings and have an extended opportunity to fellowship with us following the morning service. We would love to have the opportunity to get to know you better. All welcome; bring your friends.
For more information about our ministry, please feel free to call (309) 337-5251. We will be happy to answer any of your questions. We welcome your call or visit. Again, we are located at Sixth and Schuyler Streets, behind the bank. We look forward to meeting you.
