Weekly prayers for the people, the community, the country, and for peace

Dearest Wintergarden Faith Community, Sorry these are later this week!

Many have asked for weekly prayers to be shared with the community. This is a way for us to share the prayers shared in worship, through the food pantry, and our various other ministries. Due to privacy needs we will only include the first names of people and not last names. We also know this list will not be perfect and in need of constant updating. We will review this every week and be mindful of how we are being asked to pray for one another, our community, our country, and our world. 

Blessings,
Pastor Devon

Ongoing Prayers

In the coming weeks we will be watching and learning more about following Jesus. We will be exploring more about what is means to be disciples – learning to follow the teachings of Jesus. In this, we will using the principles of listening, loving people, building community, and exploring discipleship.
