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'll send out the request as soon as she returns. She doesn't send out the texts from her cell phone, and uses it only when she isn't home, so any messages sent to her cell may not be received for many days. Also, please understand 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: momceleste@earthlink.net, but they can be given to her in person or called to her home phone.
