Caring Community: March 15, 2016

Caring Community (slide2)

We are continuing the process of praying for authorized ministers, congregations, and ministry groups throughout 2016. Each month, we will publish a weekly list for the month and post them weekly on our Facebook page. We encourage you to include these prayer requests in your local church newsletter, share them with your prayer circle, and include them in your own prayers.

Highlights:

  • Prayers for Sandy Creek UCC in Lafayette, Alabama as they mourn the loss of John Keith Smith, known to the church community as “Coach.”  He was found dead in his home on March 3 and the death is being treated as a homicide.
  • Prayers for Rev. Bob Hurst, United Church of Huntsville who has recovered from hip surgery and is scheduled for a knee replacement March 28.
  • Prayers for Rev. Laurie Hill as she recovers from surgery.  She is serving Fairfield Glade Community Church in Tennessee.
  • Continued prayers for Rev. Michael McCaulley, Peace Church, Clemson South Carolina as he continues treatment for a bone marrow transplant at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.
