Prayer and Care Ministry

FUMC Prayer and Care Ministry

Azuma’s Hugging Cross

Mission:  To pray, connect and care for people in & outside of our church FUMC.

Coordinator:

  • Pick up prayer requests from prayer basket and offering plate person.
  • Make a list of Requestor names, who is the request for and what is their need.

Monday am:  P&C Team Members meet in chapel, go over the prayer requests and say a generic prayer for all the requests received.  Prayer request should be kept in confidence.

Disperse requests to Prayer & Care Team (P&C Team) Members.

P&C Team Member will follow up:

If prayer is for someone within the church family:

  • Pray for people’s request
  • Send card informing the person we are praying for them
  • Contact the person on the card and inform them we are praying for them
  • Contact the person on the card and ask if there is something (non-Medical), we can do for them. E.  a meal(check for food allergies), a visit, drive them somewhere.

If a meal is needed, P&C Team Member will contact the group that makes meals and request a meal (or 2).  Between the two of them, they will decide who will deliver the meals.

If it’s a visit, P&C Team Member will coordinate the visit, from himself or herself, Pastor, someone else

If it’s a ride, P&C Team Member will coordinate the ride.

If prayer is for someone outside the church family:

  • Pray for people on their request
  • Contact requestor and ask for a mailing address
  • Send card/note letting the person know we are praying for them

Every couple of weeks Prayer & Care Team will review the old lists and check in with these people.
