First UMC places a high priority on prayer for our attenders and for our community. We pray weekly during the church service for all the prayer requests brought forth. During the week, a list of Joys and Concerns is listed on our website.
We also have “faith friends” whereby we draw a name from a basket, if desired, and through the week we pray over those names. This may be anonymous or we may send them a card to let them know we care and are praying for them.
We have set aside a Prayer Room near the church altar where people can go and have a quiet time with the Lord. We have held prayer vigils in this room for the youth concerts, the consecration Sunday, youth classes, adult Sunday school classes, and other special events.
