Prayer and Praise is an important aspect of Camano Chapel family life. We desire to support our church and our community in praying for their needs and celebrating answers to those prayers. We publish all requests submitted for the "General Church" in the bulletin each Sunday. Prayer requests submitted as "Staff Only" will be kept private within the church staff community. Please let us know of your prayer requests through form at the bottom of this page or contact the church office.

Submit your prayer request:

Sept 21. 2021

Paul & Ruth Ghenov-For the past 21 years we have been blessed to worship with you every summer. We have now sold our place here on Camano and will not be back here which does make us sad. To know we were able to worship with a church that preached the Bible, where always so many friendly faces and programs for all, we always felt welcome. Thank you for feeding us spiritually.

Judi Seegert-Mackenzie has been home in Stanwood recovering from her latest treatment. On Sunday, she will return to Children's Hospital for a series of scans and a bone marrow biopsy. These tests will determine next steps. The family is praying that the scans and biopsy will reveal that the treatments have been successful. Please join them in this prayer. Thank you.

Village Missionaries: Fred & Cindy Stromberg, Azalea, OR: Azalea is an unincorporated community of roughly 800 people in Southern Oregon. The economy of the Azalea and surrounding region has been fueled by forest products. More recently, hemp and cannabis farming have become significant. The landscape is marked with timber units of different stages of recovery and green houses along with some cattle, deer, and elk. Azalea has a fire department, general store, gas station, restaurant, and a post office -- all of which goes unnoticed for most who drive by on I-5 between Grants Pass and Roseburg. PRAYER REQUEST: Azalea Community Church has been in this community since 1953 and has had some great moments. We believe that we are experiencing one of them presently -- A long-term prayer request for children has been answered positively. The church has gone from 3-5 kids a Sunday to around 20. We are facing the challenges of effectively ministering to them. Pray for workers. Another word that seems to fit the moment is “update.” We have added technology and are replacing the church floor, along with other changes. Our prayer is for continued growth in numbers and people who are able and willing to serve and for unity. No advance of the Gospel goes without opposition.

Pray for our safe travel to Mexico this Friday. We are going on a 2 week vacation. Pray our animals all stay healthy while we are gone.
