3 Ideas for Using the CKC 6K Prayer Guide in Your Church Community

By CKC Project Manager Cat Knarr

The Global 6K for Water on May 4, 2019 is much more than a race. It’s a discipleship, outreach, and community building program, which expands clean water access for our friends living in a remote area of northwest DR Congo. One of the ways that you can deepen your congregation’s 6K discipleship experience is by using the CKC Six Weeks to 6K Prayer Guide. With this six-week devotional, your people can read reflections to learn more about life in DR Congo, pray for our partners there, and go deeper in discussion.

Here are three ideas for how you can use the Prayer Guide in your church community! Pick the idea that works best for your church community, or create your own experience.

1. Do a six-week small group study.

Got small groups? Your small groups can use the Prayer Guide together for a six-week study! Each week, participants read the two reflections, memorize the verse, do the action step, and pray. Then when you meet for small group, share your experiences from that week and talk about the group discussion question. A great way to generate deeper discussions!

2. Craft a sermon series.

Create a six-week sermon series using the weekly themes from the Prayer Guide, and encourage your congregation to read along, memorize the verses, and do the action steps as a community. You can even use the reflection articles from that week as sermon illustrations. For inspiration, check out Modesto Covenant’s sermon series “Cross Training with World Vision” from April/May 2018 at youtube.com/user/modcovchurch/videos.

3. Form walking and running teams.

Get together teams of churchgoers who would like to walk and run together to train for the Global 6K. While no training is required for the 6K, there is power in the community act of walking and running together. You’ll be surprised how many spiritual conversations will happen naturally! Schedule weekly walks/runs for the six weeks leading up to the 6K, or as a spiritual discipline during Lent. Talk about the group discussion question from the Prayer Guide as you’re out walking and running. And invite friends from outside the church to join—because why not? This is a wonderful opportunity for outreach. Have fun as you walk and grow spiritually together!
