Sign up for the Prayer Chain!
In James 5:13-16, God calls us to pray for the hurting and sick and to uphold one another in prayer. One of the ways we do this as a congregation is through the prayer chain. Requests are called in and e-mails and calls go out to notify participants of the need for prayer. Those that sign up can choose to be notified by phone or e-mail. If you would like to be a part of this valuable ministry, please contact Joyce Magnusson.
