Guidelines for our prayer ministry

            There are two prayer ministries supported by our church community. One is the Prayer Chain which is made up of two groups of individuals who have pledged to pray for church members whose need is acute and immediate. Once they are contacted, they covenant to pray for the individual(s) or the concern for the next 24 hours. This list of people and concerns is strictly confidential. To make a prayer need known, or to become a member of the prayer chain team, please call Emmy Lou Atherholt at 269-6681, or the pastor.

            The second ministry is called “Our Circle of Prayers”. This is a list of people and concerns that appear weekly in our church bulletin. This list is open to any person and/or concern, and is made available so that anyone in the community can be in prayer. To include a person or concern on this list, please call Emmy Lou, the pastor, or the church office. These people and concerns are also held up in prayer during our Wednesday prayer meetings which begin at 7:30 pm at the church, and to which everyone is invited.

            To protect people’s privacy, and to be sensitive to their wishes, it is best if the person to be prayed for, or a close relative, is the one that initiates the prayer request. Also, please leave a contact number with your request, so the church can know when to keep or remove a particular person or concern. As a general rule, the Circle of Prayers will be up-dated monthly.
