For 2022, the Capitol Prayer Gathering is slated to be a hybrid event. Both the in-person 2020 event and the virtual 2021 event received strong positive feedback on the prayer program format. As a result, for 2022, the BCNM’s Christian Life Committee is combining both formats into one event. A free in-person dinner is available at no-charge to individuals wishing to attend in Santa Fe. Similarly, a virtual version is available for individuals and churches to join from anywhere in the state. Both legislators and church members from across the state are invited to choose and register for either the in-person or virtual format.
In case the in-person event is canceled due to restrictions brought on by rising COVID-19 concerns, the event will continue in the virtual format as planned.
The in-person dinner will begin serving at 6:00pm at First Baptist Church, Santa Fe. The virtual, state-wide program will begin promptly at 6:30pm hosted live by our two hosts from the site of the in-person dinner in Santa Fe. The virtual format will be offered through both Zoom and Facebook Live.
Hosting the program will involve 43+ people from varied locations in New Mexico. Fifteen prayer leaders, 15 name readers, four other program personnel and 14 technical crew members will combine their efforts to host the event. Several churches have already indicated that they are using the prayer gathering event for their existing Wednesday evening prayer activities that night.
Registration is necessary for planning and hosting the online event.
The prayer gathering intentionally focuses upon prayer for state and legislative leaders. No keynote personality will speak. Hosts, name readers and prayer leaders will read Scripture and lead in corporate prayer. While we unwaveringly practice and promote biblically founded convictions about many moral issues, in our prayer conversations with God, we ought to intercede for our leaders and state, as well.
The CLC and all the BCNM family of churches deeply appreciates the assistance of the host church, First Baptist Church, Santa Fe, and its staff.
Registration will open Jan. 5. Guests and church members may register online (through this page) or by calling Joy Pittman at (505) 924-2311.
The Capitol Prayer Gathering, funded by the Cooperative Program, is planned and offered by the BCNM’s Christian Life Committee.
