Our prayer list needs to be updated constantly.  Please remember those with long-term illnesses and shut-ins in your personal prayers.  Various needs, thanks, and celebrations are indeed reasons for prayer that we should share with our fellow members.  Please know that your communication with the pastors or church office will be required to keep names on the Prayer List longer than two weeks.
