Prayer Ministry Opportunities
Lifting one another up to God is an important way we care for each other. Prayer cards are available in the pews. After they are dropped in the offering plate on Sundays, they are disseminated to FUMC clergy and to concerned prayer servants for prayerful intercession. You can also place your prayer requests HERE.
We have a variety of prayer ministries throughout the church: in the building and online. In this way, we lift one another up and bring the healing presence of Christ. If you would like to learn more about the ways in which we care for one another please take time to read about our ministries below.
I am praying to you because I know you will answer, O God. Bend down and listen as I pray.
