Community Prayer Flags

Pastor Hope Chernich, First Church of Des Plaines

First Church Des Plaines is collecting prayers from the community.

Our prayer team meets each week to lift up members of our congregation, friends, family members, and neighbors.  If you would like us to pray for you, use the QR code to share your request.

 This summer, we aim to gather people from all corners of our community who show care for their neighbors and are actively pursuing peace. As people of faith, we often express ourselves in prayer. Prayer is a sacred practice of many different religions and cultures.

Our goal is to create a setting for our community, with its many different backgrounds, to come together and pray.

Flags are a symbolic way for people to offer prayers to the Divine. Write your prayers on fabric flags for display at 668 Graceland this summer, courtesy of First Church Des Plaines.


Every week, our congregation members will gather under the flags 

to pray for God to listen to the prayers of our community.
