Care & Concern and Prayer Wall

Tools for Prayer: Care & Concern and Prayer Wall

These are both tools for us to pray for each other. They look different and include different information. If you have any questions about prayer requests, please contact Lisa Snow at lisas@fpcsat.org or 210-226-0215.

The Prayer Wall is there for you – ask for prayer, pray for others, and see when people are praying for your needs. This collection of prayers is published to the wider audience of anyone who visits the prayer wall. Any visitor to the webpage will see the prayers and have the opportunity to pray. This information is updated online daily. The Prayer Wall information will also be sent out each week on Thursdays as part of our First Look email – subscribe here. You may submit a prayer request online here or email your request to PrayerWall@fpcsat.org.

Care and Concern has a limited audience within the congregation and is more private, and as such can offer more personal information for congregational care to take place as well as prayer. You must submit your email address and request to be part of this email list by contacting Lisa Snow at lisas@fpcsat.org or 210-226-0215.

*Please be aware that Care Ministry staff and pastors have editorial rights to protect the privacy of those asking for prayer through editing content or removing details in both avenues.


To notify the church of hospitalizations and /or other pastoral care needs, contact Rev. Scott Simpson Associate Pastor for Congregational Care, at scotts@fpcsat.org or 210-226-0215, ext. 212.

Whenever we have an opportunity, let us work for the good of all, and especially for the family of faith.

(Gal. 6:10)



The Apostle Paul’s letter to the Galatians calls them to serve the family of faith. FPC’s congregationally-focused Handy Helpers Care Team works to assist members with small home repair needs. The Team responds for congregational members who are limited by life-challenging situations, an illness, limitations brought on by the aging process, a simple maintenance issue that the member cannot safely perform.

Handy Helpers begin with a home visit to evaluate the repair request and the skills needed to complete the work. They discuss a recommended course of action and, if possible, do the work. This might include replacing light bulbs, installing air conditioner filters, and making minor cabinet repairs.

If licensed technical help is needed or if a project is too complex, the Team offers assistance in identifying and, where required, obtaining that technical expertise.

Why do we have Handy Helpers? One Christian ministry is to provide care for our church family, and a team of people who have the skills to make small repairs is a unique element of that ministry. Our Handy Helpers Team members clearly understand how and when they are able to respond to requests for assistance. They  are a strong outreach group within our church family.
