Mission Moment: Synod Prayer Team

South-Central Synod of Wisconsin Synod Prayer Team

 Did you know that the synod has a prayer team that actively prays for our synod?

 In a spirit of love and care for one another as rostered ministers of this synod, a Synod Prayer Team has been created to offer prayer for those times when a rostered minister would like either themselves or their loved ones to be lifted up in prayer. The synod prayer team also prays for our congregations, communities and our world.  We are the body of Christ together, and enfolding one another in prayer is a comforting and sustaining expression of this body.

Recently our team lifted in prayer Chaplain Mark Teslik and the community of Columbia Correctional Institution in Portage.   CCI was recently put on lock-down due to an incident of violence by an inmate against a staff member. 


Rev. Mark Teslik is a rostered leader in our synod, called to serve as a Chaplain to CCI providing spiritual care to this community that desperately needs to hear the good news and feel the presence of God.  Our team swiftly shared the prayer request for this beloved community.


Our team prays for our community leaders during legislative sessions that holy conversations would capture the hearts and imaginations of those participating for just and loving outcomes.

The members of the Synod Prayer Team are: Rev. Nancy Raabe, Rev. Lisa Nelson, Deacon Meg Nielsen, Diane Padrutt (co-chair), Deacon Judy Nolde (co-chair), Deacon Vicki Hanrahan, and Rev. Ken Smith.  If you would like the prayer team to pray for you, either contact the synod office or Deacon Judy Nolde who is coordinating the prayer team, at judynolde@sbcglobal.net (cell 608.219.4556). Deacon Judy then will send a prayer request by email to the prayer team asking for prayers.

Today, our team is holding in prayer the community of Wartburg Seminary on the loss of one of our beloved professors, colleague and friend in Rev. Dr. Gwen Sayler. 


To submit a prayer request, contact Deacon Judy Nolde at judynolde@sbcglobal.net or call her cell:  608.219.4556.
