Caring Community: April 1, 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.


  • Condolences to the family of Jack Yates who died March 23, 2016. He would have turned 90 on March 27the. He celebrated the 66th anniversary of his ordination in June 2015. We keep Bettye and their two daughters in prayer. Services will be held April 19 at Pleasant Hill Community Church. Details are pending.
  • Prayers for the family of Michael McCaulley and for Peace Church, Clemson South Carolina. His memorial service was held on March 23, 2016.
  • Prayers for Rev. Bob Hurst, United Church of Huntsville who had knee replacement surgery March 28.
