Prayer Requests

As a community of faith we offer our prayers of celebration and joy, prayers of discernment and wisdom, as well as our prayers of concern and struggle to God. By faith we believe God hears and responds to all our prayers. 


Prayers will be shared with the pastor and the prayer group who are bound in a covenant of confidentiality. Requests will not be shared during public prayer time unless you ask us to share them with the entire congregation. You are invited to offer your prayers here.
