Dearest Wintergarden Faith Community, 

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. 

Pastor Devon

For baby Arlo as she struggles on.
For Cheryl’s brother in Georgia. Specifically, that he would slow down and get some rest.

Finally, please pray for peace throughout the world.
