Caring Community: September 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.

Highlights:
  • Condolences to the family of Roy Siewert who lived in Pleasant Hill, Tennesee.  He died August 20, 2016 at the age of 86.  He is survived by his wife Evelyn and four children.
