prayer requests

Please fill out the form below to request prayers for a loved one, friend or yourself. Some helpful tips below:

1. You can choose to receive email notifications when someone prays for your prayer request by checking the "receive email notifications" button below.

2. You can filter how much information is seen on the website when the prayer request is submitted. This includes name, email, phone, and the content of the prayer requests.

3. You can choose how much information the church website administrators and pastors can see about yourself and your request. You can allow the admins and pastors to see everything or limit their accessibility to only the actual prayer request itself.

4. Prayer requests have to be approved before they show up on the list below.  The pastors and website administrators may still decided to keep certain requests from being posted if they deem that what is included in the request is of a highly sensitive nature.  This does not mean that we won't be praying for them, however - we will!

5. Prayer requests will be kept on the page for four weeks unless we learn that an answer to them has been received ahead of that time.  If the thing about which you are praying persists beyond the four weeks, please resubmit your request or let the church office know to keep it on the list until such time that an answer is received.

Visitors who have prayed for someone on the prayer request page can click on the praying hands to let that person know that someone prayed for them. Scroll to the bottom of the page for the prayer list.
