Throughout the years I have noticed that the members of First Baptist Church do a very good job of caring for one another. I am so very proud of you. Lately our deacons have been very proactive in contacting our church family when they have a need or crisis. As a matter of fact, many times by the time I reach out, someone in our church family has already done so. This is a great thing.
That said, in this unique time when we must distance ourselves and limit our face to face interactions, we have encountered new challenges in caring for one another. One of these challenges is knowing how to pray for one another, particularly when there are specific requests.
The Deacon Ministry Prayer Team has made arrangements for those wishing to receive prayer concerns via text or the Remind App. I want to invite you to participate. This was organized some time ago – but it really comes in handy right now. (See instructions below.)
Here our staff and administrators of the group will post needs and prayer concerns in our church and community as we learn of them.
Attached is a prayer listing as updated as we have it now. During this time where people may feel isolated, take time to send notes, make a telephone call, or in some way make a contact of those in need of prayer.
Check the church directory or call the church office for addresses and phone numbers. (A few extra directories are in the office if you need one.)

If you wish to receive the notification of prayer concerns by text, the
graphic above indicates you can receive texts by taking out your cell
phone and dialing 81010 and then text @fbcwpraye
Or if you’d like to use the Remind App,
1. Open the Remind app. The app’s logo is light blue
with a white silhouette in it. If you don’t have the Remind app, it is
available on the App Store and the Google Play store.
2. Tap + to the right of “Classes Joined.” This should bring you to the “Join Class” interface.
3. Type in the class code. Ours is: @fbcwpraye
