Koinonia Prayer List

PRAYER REQUESTS (joys and concerns) should be called in or e-mailed to the church office. With your permission, they will be listed in the Koinonia prayer list, and announced in worship so that the church family can pray for the mentioned needs. Please keep the office updated on the requests.

Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but that very Spirit intercedes with sighs too deep for words.   Romans 8:26
CELEBRATIONS/Prayers of thanksgiving
  • Tim Ghogle has received his Visa and plans to return to the US as scheduled on July 23.
  • For the Covid-19 vaccine and those that are receiving it 
  • Thanks be to God for those recovered from Covid
  • Thanks to the volunteers that are continuing to produce our live and recorded worship services.  
  • The CPC deacons that are shepherding their flocks and caring for needs of the church and community
  •   From the POV - Churches Seeking Pastoral Leadership -- At any given time in our presbytery, several congregations are in search of pastoral leadership. As of June 2021, four pastor nominating committees (PNCs) are in place and searching for installed pastoral leadership. Other sessions are searching for part-time stated supply pastors. Still others are exploring the type of pastoral leadership that will best help them be in ministry to one another and their communities. Please pray for discernment for all involved in the search for pastoral leadership, for those pastors searching for a new call, and for the committee on ministry and presbytery staff that help guide congregations and pastors through times of transition.

Weekly Prayers 

O Good Jesu,
Word of the Father,
the brightness of the Father's glory,
whom angels desire to behold;
teach us to do Your will;
that guided by Your good Spirit,
we may come to that blessed city where there is everlasting day.
   -- Gregory the Great (540-604)

The day Thou gavest, Lord, is ended;
The darkness falls at Thy behest.
To Thee my morning prayers ascended;
Thy praise shall hallow now my rest.
   -- John Ellerton (1826-1893)
