"Give all your worries and cares to God,
for he cares about what happens to you." 1 Peter 5:7

 


Prayer connects us with God. Sharing each other's concerns strengthens our faith and reminds that we are not alone. How may we pray for you?

Praying for each other is important to us. Spoken and un-spoken prayer requests can be made by calling the church office (724-843-0862), sending an e-mail to the church unionville1@comcast.net, or calling Elmira Hollingshead  (724-432-3403). Special thanks for your help in keeping us in touch with the concerns of our church family. Let us continue to lift one another up in a spirit of prayer.

If you would like to be added to our prayer concerns e-mail list, please notify the church office.

Current Prayer Concerns for our Church Family and Friends are published in each months Church Newsletter. Prayer concerns received after each newsletter has been published are posted on this page as they are received. Please check back often.
