Prayer Ministry Coordinator

Marilyn has been a member of SUMC for over 25 years and has worked in missions and prayer ministry for many of those years.  She is glad to pray with someone in need of prayer, and she tries to call the church to prayer, including 6:30-7:30 the first Monday each month.  Another part of the prayer ministry is the prayer chain, which Betty Haas faithfully maintains.  Prayer classes are periodically offered.  Marilyn believes "Much prayer, much power.  Little prayer, little power. No prayer, no power."  She is married to George and is retired, which leaves them with time for reading and travel.
