Emergency Prayer Requests

If someone has an emergency prayer request to go out as a text, the best way to contact our Prayer Chain Coordinator Celeste Lazar is her home phone:  330-259-1476.  She is usually home, but if not, leave a message and she will send out the request as soon as she returns.  Celeste does not send out the texts from her cell phone, and uses it only when  she is not home, so any messages sent to her cell may not be received for several days.  Also, please understand that she must limit the number of words used in a text, so she may need to edit a message before sending it out.  Celeste prefers  that regular email prayer chain requests be sent to her prayer email address:, but they can be given to her in person or called to her home phone.
