The requests sent in to the Agape Prayer Chain are sent out to through a free app called Group Me.  If you would like to be added to the prayer chain please let us know along with your cell phone and/or email on your connect card in the bulletin.  You will need to download the app on your device and go through a one time registration / sign up process for group me, after that you will see the prayer requests come through like a group text.
