Calling all intercessors: St. John’s is blessed to have not one, but two prayer chains! Of all the ways we can live our faith, praying for others is one of the most effective and fruitful. Do you sense the Holy Spirit inviting you to join this illustrious group and help people in their time of need? If so, please contact Ann Bohnert at 715-389-2726 or Jane Gerend at 715-387-2019. The work you’ll be doing requires making a phone call and then storming Heaven with your prayers. This announcement means we could use more prayer partners and if you’re reading this, God has His eye on you!
