Prayer and Care

One of the clearest marks of a healthy church is a commitment to prayer.

Prayer binds us together.

Prayer helps us grow closer to God.

Prayer shapes who we are and what we do.

Prayer changes things.

Prayer Resources

Maybe you are looking for a guide to help you in your prayer life. There are many to choose from at PCUMC. 

Where can you pray?

Of course, prayers are heard wherever they are offered. If you would like a special place to pray in and around the church, check these locations.

Any specific prayer concerns will be shared with the Pastor. Additionally, those concerns will be shared with the Prayer Team and Prayer Chain if desired.

The Kitchen Team helps provide foor for those coming home from the hospital and during other difficult life events.
