This week's community joys & concerns from May 12, 2024


Among our Joys:

  • Thanks for the beauty of this day, and for the tea time being prepared for all to enjoy after today's worship. -Mother's Day - we give thanks for the mothers of our lives, and we hold in our hearts those for whom this day is difficult. Those carrying grief, those seeking healing, those who find themselves estranged or alone, may we be receive our example of mothering from the God who has made us, with courage, prioritize the tending to the needs of our young, and of all of God's children, to the earth and all that live herein.


Among our concerns:

  • We hold in our prayers Laura Cohthril, recovering at a transitional rehab hospital

  • We also hold Mel Peabody’s mother in our prayers, as she continues recovering from a fall last week.

  • Pat McDaniel.

  • Karen Murray's friend Nancy

  • Mary Hans-Zwosta, a friend of Sue Simpson

  • Danny Jablonski, and his spouse, Gordon

  • Marc Master

  • Alex Tapia

  • Corrine Bahrke's friend, Loralie

  • Martha Redford's friends, Margo and Teresa

  • For our homebound friends, including Harry and Margaret Lobberegt, Helen Bosley, Marylu and Joseph Mills and Jane Nelson


Among our local and global community,

  • We pray for peace, for those under occupation, for those who fall victim to tyrannical rule, for all building peace in a world obsessed with war. We pray for Gaza, the West Bank, Ukraine, Israel, Iran, and anywhere God’s peace is trampled in the human quest for might.

  • We lift up the village on 6th and Orchard.

  • We lift up our Global Ministries partners in Palestine.


If you'd like to share a prayer joy or concern, please contact Pastor Doug at doug@fcctacoma.org or by calling the church office. Please indicate whether your prayer is to be shared publicly, or if you'd like it to be kept private.
