A Growing Together Prayer from Don & Linda Crone

photo-1Dear Lord,

Thank you for directing us to your church at Hamilton Mill. We have been welcomed and loved ever since we first attended.

Your love and presence are manifest there in so many ministries. The amazing thing about HMUMC is that you have directed so many of the members to be part of these giving and loving ministries. These ministries express the love and kindness that you spoke to your disciples about in  your final parable  in Mathew.

These ministries demonstrate your love for us and it is reflected by us into our community. People recognize what a special church you have established here and as a result we have grown to a point that limits our ability to meet the needs of all who want to attend and be a part of these loving ministries.

Our prayer is that, with your help and guidance, we will be able to expand our facilities, wisely use the resources you have provided us with, and continue and expand our love to meet the needs of our community.

– Don Crone


Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you for the privilege of coming before you with desires on my heart. I find myself in the midst of many others with the same realization that our church, Hamilton Mill United Methodist Church, is in need of an expansion to our existing facilities. Our existing sanctuary has served it’s original purpose to be a worship place for our congregation, but in order to reach out to our community and adequately have the space to make new worshippers welcome, we need a new sanctuary with larger space. A plan has been studied and proposed, that would serve this purpose, and give our youth a larger space, in order to grow, as well. In order to make this come about, we need Your approval and blessing.

It is in Jesus’s name I ask this,

-Linda Crone
