Laguna Presbyterian Church prayer chain participants pray for the needs of those who make specific prayer requests. These confidential requests may be submitted on the cards found in the sanctuary pews and placed in the Sunday service offering plates, or by phoning the prayer chain coordinator. These requests are then sent on by email to members of our prayer chain. If you are willing to pray for such needs or you have a prayer need, contact 949-494-6802 or email Nancy Wade.
Monthly Prayer Meeting-First Saturday, 8:30 am
Join us on the first Saturday of each month for an open church prayer time, 8:30 – 9:15 a.m. in the “Prayer Room” off of the sanctuary chancel. Enter through the south patio door to the sanctuary. The focus of this time is to give thanks and to offer up concerns for our church and our community. All are welcome!
Sunday Prayer Ministry
After each Sunday worship service, prayer ministers are at the front of the sanctuary to pray for you and your need in a confidential way. Just walk up and ask for prayer.
