Prayers for May
The synod encourages congregations to continue praying during Sunday worship for the renewal of the church by praying for congregations of the Southeastern Iowa Synod, other synods, and people throughout the world.
Grand Canyon Synod (our partner synod)
For pastors serving interim ministries. As they assist congregations during times of transition, may God provide them guidance and support.
For all those who care for children. We remember today all of those who care for and protect children and give thanks for their presence in our lives.
Rocky Mountain Synod
For high school and college graduates as they complete their studies and enter into a new chapter of life. May God bless them as they start a new journey.
St. John, Olin
As we observe Memorial Day, let us remember the generations past and present that have served our country in the armed forces and especially those who have given their lives in that service
