First Wednesday | Back to School Prayer

First Wednesday | Back to School Prayer


Prayer Emphasis: Kindergarten – College-age Students

It’s so hard to believe that the summer is winding down and it’s time to get ready to head back to school. We want you to know that Capital is here to support, pray, and walk alongside you this school year – whether that be in a building, online or at home.  We also understand the importance of our church’s support of our students, educators and administrators. Knowing they have a church walking alongside them makes a huge difference to our students  – no matter what stage of school they are in – and educators alike. 

Join us on Wednesday, September 7 at 7pm in the Auditorium for a Back-to-School prayer and worship night! Kids K-12th grade can start the night checking into their regular rooms and will be brought over in the middle of service to be prayed over. 

Here are some scriptures to pray over our students this year:

Protection Over Our Kids

Scripture: But let all who take refuge in you rejoice; let them sing joyful praises forever. Spread your protection over them, that all who love your name may be filled with joy. Psalm 5:11

Give Strength to Our Teachers

Scripture: I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being. Ephesians 3:16 NIV 

Building Good Friendships

Scripture: As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend. Proverbs 27:17

Show Our Kids the Right Path

Scripture: Show me the right path, O Lord; point out the road for me to follow. Psalms 25:4 NLT

Give Our Children Hearts for Learning

Scripture: Intelligent people are always ready to learn. Their ears are open for knowledge. Proverbs 18:15 NLT

Prayer for Common Sense and Insight

Scripture: Common sense and success belong to me. Insight and strength are mine. Proverbs 8:14

Finding Purpose

Scripture: But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever, the purposes of his heart through all generations. Psalms 33:11 NIV

To Be a Kind Friend

Scripture: Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Colossians 3:12 NIV

Accepting Correction

Scripture: Get all the advice and instruction you can, so you will be wise the rest of your life. Proverbs 19:20

For Unspeakable Joy

Dream Team Celebration | Aug 31

Dream Team Celebration | Aug 31


Wednesday, August 31 | 6:30pm | Capital Christian Lobby

We are hosting a party for all of our Dream Teams! If you volunteer in any area of service at Capital: musicians, greeters, ushers, Capital Kids, Connect Group leaders, Rooted leaders, Celebrate Recovery volunteers, men’s and women’s leaders, senior adult volunteers, and all other areas of ministry . . . you won’t want to miss a night dedicated to honor you! Dress is casual and volunteer awards will be handed out.

We have some surprises in store for this unforgettable night. Capital doesn’t just happen week to week, it’s built and carried everyday, by everyday people – people who give their time, talent, and energy to make church a great experience for others. Whether it’s sweeping or singing, on Sunday or midweek, volunteering is a fantastic way to forge new friendships while learning new skills or strengthening established ones.

Worship Playlists

Worship Playlists


The month of August has come and we are excited about pressing in to a worship and prayer focus in our Sunday services. There is nothing like understanding who God is and expressing that to Him. It seems to settle us in our own journey and informs us about who we are when we worship Him.

We need more of His presence. That is one of our values. We will pursue the presence of God. Let’s press in and pursue the presence of God. Below you will find some samples of Worship Playlists. You can listen to these for free!

Jesus in the Secular World | Workshop May 21

Jesus in the Secular World | Workshop May 21

Free Workshop | May 21 | 9am-1pm

How can we reach our kids and grandkids who have walked away from the church?

There is an ever-widening cultural divide between the secular youth culture and the Church. Much of what was formerly regarded as the Christian world is leaving its roots behind and is dominated by secularism and relativism. The bible is no longer considered the moral compass, but rather everyone is free to decide for themselves what is right and wrong. The “Jesus in the Secular World” workshop will provide you with an in-depth understanding of the secular mindset, inspire personal revival, and equip you with practical next steps to relevantly engage the secular world with the powerful Gospel message.

Join us for a workshop led by Aaron Pierce, International Director of Steiger, on Saturday, May 21, from 9am-1pm at Capital. You can RSVP for this FREE by clicking the ticket link.
