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.

Hello from the Parrish family!! We have missed our Camano church family but we are doing great!! Eric is attending Liberty university online to get his masters in theology and our health has improved so much! The kids are growing and doing great! And we welcomed our eighth baby, Levi, into our family in April. Just wanted to let you know we miss you and what a blessing you were to us!!

Village Missionaries: Casey & Hope Holencik, Bangor, CA: Our 650 person “postal designated area,” not quite in the town of Bangor, CA, is nestled in the Butte Mountain foothills. It is a very dry region but has beautiful horse country and homesteads. There are no stop lights; but we have a post office, fire department, 100-child K-8 school, feed store, and corner store. We are famous for our Mennonite bakery. Our tiny but mighty church, is really branching out and reaching the community with Christ’s love, meeting the many needs of the people due to fires, loss, and other small-town issues. PRAYER REQUESTS: Pray for our growing relationship with the school kids and teachers, VBS this summer, and other possible children’s outreach. Our CDI class is growing as well, and we are encouraged by how many genuinely want to study the Bible. There are not many community events to meet people in an organic, easy way, so we try to strike up conversations wherever we can. Please pray for more places and opportunities to get to know those we haven’t yet met. We are encouraged that after being here only 2 years now, the people are seeing that we care and are here to stay; they are even calling me Casey more often than “pastor.” We love our community her

Village Missionaries: Steve & Sharon Waite, Wytopitlock, ME: We are in a small community in the southernmost part of Aroostook County, Maine. Formally a productive logging community, we are now a town with a small population, but with people who need encouragement, comfort, and spiritual guidance. The church here has been with Village Missions since 1973! Often the comments from our church members focus on how Village Missions has been faithful to this area in sending leadership throughout these many years. PRAYER REQUESTS: Please pray for Sharon and me as we minister to the various needs. Some of our people have recently faced tragic news, some have faced bad news of their health, and still others have seen God answering prayer in their lives and families. Pray for our upcoming VBS this year and with the many preparations for its success. Pray that God would open eyes to the Gospel and that others would grow in their walk with God. Pray for Sharon as she continues to battle with health issues. Pray for the deacon board leadership of our church to remain strong and focused on what God leads us to and through.

Juan & Carolyn Hogan-Dear Camano Chapel staff and family, Thank you for your continued love, support, encouragement and servanthood for the body of Christ and our community! So looking forward to our reunion and greeting each other in joy and thanksgiving. May God continue to bless each one of you!

Brad & Nichola Wiley-Prayers and blessings to all! In Jesus’ name.

Heidi Hanson-I’m looking forward to the Sunday when I can worship at church with all of the church family. I keep all of you in thought and prayer. I have hope and peace knowing we all will be together hopefully soon.

Rick Shabo-May 12 I received a group text from my sister Becky informing us of our 97 year old Mom’s unresponsive condition. I called her to understand the gravity of Mom’s condition. I immediately packed a bag and journeyed to Puyallup to Mom’s nursing home. Becky had gotten special permission to be at Mom’s bedside which extended to me as well. Understand that all the residents and staff had tested positive for Covid 19 and the Home was in lockdown. I double masked, gowned, gloved and eye protection and went to Mom’s bedside. My sister was so thankful I was there. Nobody should pass away without loved ones present. As we sat there we observed Mom and knew she was not cognitive BUT her mind was alert. Becky and I reminisced about Mom and stories of our childhood. We held her hand as she took her last breath and I asked Jesus to receive her into his presence. It was a peaceful beautiful moment knowing she was completely healed and made new. On our way back to Becky’s we realized we needed to be tested for Covid 19 and faced quarantine for 14 days. Mind you I only had two changes of clothes and a few days of meds and vitamins left. The next day we were tested and two days later negative results came back. I praise God for that time we had with Mom and His provision for negative infection for us in our efforts to be with Mom. What a hope we have in our Lord knowing we too one day will face eternity with Him.

Barbara Tomlinson-I have eye diseases that threaten blindness (glaucoma, cataracts, etc.). Doctors have done what they can, but with limited success. Please pray for God's healing and for the restoration of the eye sight I have already lost. Please pray for our children. Daughter Rochelle has mental illness along with post traumatic stress from a childhood event. She has trouble holding a job and with just functioning in every day life. Son Shannon has health problems tough to deal with. He also seems lost, confused, and without purpose in life. Both have become angry and bitter and blames God and the world. They need physical, emotional, spiritual healing and restoration to the Lord. Also as parents, we are deep in debt trying to help them and keep them. Please pray for God's help and for His financial anointing.

Pastor Kris Kramer-Senior Pastor/Elder

Nate Laun—Facility Assistant

Kathie Irwin-His Garden

Rob Berrett-Administrative Board Vice-Chairman

Cilem & Harley Suprint-(Grace Comm. Church, Cap Haitian, Haiti)

Village Missionaries: Jeff & Kristin Goodwin, Loma, CO: Loma is unincorporated, and in the high desert valley of western Colorado between the Utah border and the city of Grand Junction, CO. People drive between 6 to 25 miles to the cities of Fruita, Grand Junction, Clifton, and Orchard Mesa for just about everything -- including schools, restaurants, stores, activities, and many ‘city’ churches. But those who 'stay rural' for church at LCC find it to be a place that helps families grow-up in Christ Jesus together, learning how to live for God by His Word. PRAYER REQUESTS: Pray that the church body will impact and influence their relational worlds for Jesus by living their lives for Him and speaking on His behalf. Pray for our many ministries, including Vacation Bible School, After School Bible Club, Fellowship Gatherings, Youth Group, Men/Women Ministries, etc. Pray for us (Jeff & Kristin) as we lead this localized body of believers to live in the world but not of the world.

Ken Neilson-Prayer for our family as we mourn the passing of Pam's dad, Norm Grossmann. Praise for care givers who relaxed Coronavirus protocols in order for the whole family to say our good byes and for friends who stood with us. God is good!

Pastor Brett Reid –Elder/Executive Pastor

Joan Haidle-Connection Corner

Ray Harrison-Administrative Board Chairman

Danny & Taylor Atkins-(Kirche in Aktion-Germany)

Village Missionaries: Josh & Xiomara Gard, Beaver, OR: Beaver is a small town within Tillamook County on the Oregon Coast. The primary sources of income in our county are farming, logging, and tourism. Beaver itself is one of the poorer communities within the county, with much need. Spiritually, the people in our community have some awareness of Christianity, but few have deep faith. Many have blended a variety of spiritual ideas together and are confused. PRAYER REQUESTS: We praise the Lord for a spiritually healthy church in Beaver. Please pray for continued unity in the congregation and that we will have a good testimony in our community. Please pray for opportunities to speak about the Gospel with people who visit our church food pantry. We will also be joining a nearby church served by Village Missions for Vacation Bible School in mid-June. Please pray for children from the community to attend, to hear the Gospel, and to be saved.

Jack Wolhart-Pray for my older sister who has Covid-19. She was just recently released from the hospital to quarantine at home. She lives in a very rural area of Nevada and having difficulty acquiring the prescription medications prescribed by her doctor for Covid-19. Pray for her recovery and that she will be able to procure the prescriptions to help her recover.

Raymond & Ruby Mensah-(Antioch Bible Church, Ghana, Africa)

Village Missionaries: Jim & Pam Canady, Crawfordsville, IN: Liberty Chapel is very much a country church. We are surrounded by corn and soybean fields. The closest communities are 5.5 miles north, New Richmond, IN (Hickory from the movie “Hoosiers”), and 6 miles south, Crawfordsville, IN. Our church members have a pretty good mix of jobs: a few farmers, some business owners, those who work in various factories in the area, a few retirees, and quite a few who work in the local public schools: teaching, bus driving, or in the cafeteria. PRAYER REQUESTS: 1) Not being a church in a town setting, we have to be creative in how we do community. Pray for us as we seek innovative ways to develop a strong community. 2) Pray for us as we prepare for our 2020 VBS. Last years was very successful; not only did several children place their trust in Jesus Christ, but the church gained two young families as a result. Additionally, one of the new families brought in two other families. 3) Pray for us as we are trying to find a children’s/youth pastor. We currently have around 40 kids between the age of 5 years through 12th grade. Pam and I are both in our 60’s, and it is increasingly difficult for us to keep up, particularly with the youth.
