A Service of Healing
A Service of Healing will follow the 10:00 a.m. service at the front of the Sanctuary. This service of prayers for healing reflects our belief that God’s purpose for us all is a life of wholeness for our mind, body, and spirit. The ministry of healing is an integral part of our Christian witness. So, too, our prayers are complementary to the work of medicine and other forms of healing, which are also channels of God’s loving and transforming purpose. All are welcome to share in this ministry to pray for themselves or for another person or situation. There will be an opportunity for those who wish to come forward to share in the laying-on of hands, anointing with oil, and a brief moment to share concerns privately with the Pastor.
Our hope is that as a Christian community, all who attend will feel God’s acceptance and love, and this will sustain us in our process of healing.
