Healing Services:
3rd Sunday of February, May , August & November
 
All are invited to participate in the Service of Healing, either for oneself or on the behalf of another. Laying of hands and anointing with oil play a central role in the healings recorded in the New Testament, Jesus often touched others  -- blessing children, washing feet, healing injuries or disease, and raising people from death. Biblical precedent combines with our natural desire to reach out to persons in need in prompting us to touch gently and lovingly those who ask for healing prayers. such an act is a tangible expression of the presence of the healing Christ, working in and through those who minister in his name. Anointing the forehead with oil is an act invoking the healing love of God. The oil points beyond itself and those doing the anointing to the action of the Holy Spirit and the presence of the healing Christ, who is God's anointed One.
