At Hope UMC we have 2 active prayer chains: one on which we are connected by the internet and another one for those without internet access who wish to participate in this ministry. Each week you will receive a message containing the Joys and Concerns from the Sunday worship and any special requests that arise during the week. If you are so led, we ask that you offer prayers for these individuals and situations. Please contact Pastor Linny or the church office if you have questions or wish to be included on one of the lists.
If you wish to place flowers on the altar in honor or memory of a loved one, please contact the secretary in the church office to arrange the date and the dedication for the bulletin. You may also make a donation in honor or memory of a loved one in lieu of flowers. Please bring flowers 15 minutes prior to worship.
