Prayer Is Power

Life can be tough, but you don’t have to go through it alone. Wherever you are in life or whatever you’re facing, we know that the first step to getting past something that is holding you back is to reach out and speak to someone. We offer trained volunteers to help you in need.

Reaching out to transform lives…

Here at Collierville UMC, we have several support ministries that are confidential and offer safe places for you to talk to people just like you.


Prayer Ministry
Lifting individuals before God in prayer each day, the Prayer Ministry Team seeks God’s healing, comfort, guidance, love, compassion, and presence. Send prayer requests to prayerministry@colliervilleumc.org.

Prayer Room
Located at the end of the hallway to the right of the Poplar Sanctuary, past the room for nursing mothers or crying babies, provides a quiet location to reflect and pray. Prayer cards, the church prayer list, Bibles and prayer shawls are available to assist with your prayer life.
