Dearest Wintergarden Faith Community, 

As we continue to pray for one another, our community, our country, and our world, let us do so with love and hope. Our weekly email of prayers is a way for us to share the prayers shared in worship, through the food pantry, and our various other ministries with a larger group. 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.

Prayers of Joy

  • A list of joys were offered by Kymmie this week:
    • for all the Mom’s in her life! 
    • for time with her dad and brother. 
    • for a level of pain relief and for the hope for continued healing and health.  
    • for all the beautiful human beings able to look up and see the beautiful light. 
  • Joy also for our many volunteers at the pantry, garden, disaster recovery, and throughout the church. 
  • We’re so grateful for those that were able to come and help on the work day. There’s a new fire pit, lots of weeds were pulled, trash disposed of and so much more. It was awesome, so thanks to you all!


  • Pray for healing for Janet and for any insurance or other barriers to treatment to fall away. 
  • Prayers for Kymmie’s mom and for all who love her through her illness and for all her family as they return to their homes after her grandfather’s funeral.
