Thank you for being a part of our prayer ministry at Saint Paul's UMC in Tallahassee. Prayer is such a vital and important part of our church, and I am so grateful for you.
We are always evaluating our ministries, and working on ways to make them better and more effective. Right now, we receive the prayer request cards that people fill out on Sunday morning and on Monday morning I read them and make phone calls for any needs that are urgent. The rest get added to our prayer list, and the Wednesday morning prayer group gathers at 8am to pray over those needs, plus any others that they bring. We often send out cards to those most in need of encouragement and support, and we pass along names of those who are ill to the meal team.
The official prayer list is then updated on Wednesday morning. Those names are copied to the Weekly Notes (an email that goes out on Thursday), and copies are printed and placed in the Narthex for people to pick up on Sunday. Once a month, the names are copied to the Epistle as well.
We are attempting to streamline some of our communication processes, and I am trying to identify the best way to communicate our church's prayer needs. I would like to hear back from you. Please take a moment and click the link below and fill out a brief survey. Again, thank you for praying for your church.
Grace and peace,
Rev. Becky Rokitowski, Associate Pastor
