Asking for Prayers at All Saints

There are 2 main ways to ask for prayers for oneself or for another. If for another, the request should first be approved by that person.

Prayer Chain (Telephone Chain for quick response)
There are a group of parishioners who volunteer to pray confidentially at home for us. One can request these confidential prayers any time through the Prayer Chain. To start the Prayer Chain call or email one of the Prayer Chain leaders Ann Laughner or Sara Munford. Please give the name(s) of person to be prayed for, and a summary (as appropriate) of the concern and desired prayers. They will call those next on chain and soon all will be praying
for your concerns.


Prayers of the People
As a congregation we pray for those whose names have been placed on the list for Prayers of the People. This may be for a short-term need (a week or a month or so) or for more long-term need. To be placed on the list, please directly call one of the Prayer Chain leaders listed above, or Pastoral Care coordinator, Róisín McKeithan. Or you may call the church office (252) 261-6674 and give request to our Parish Administrator, Christina Atkinson, or our Rector, Rev. Cindy Simpson, at office or cell phone if needed. Church office hours Monday-Thursday, 9am-3pm.
If for another, the request should first be approved by that person.
