Special Service for Healing and Wholeness
What does it mean to have a Healing Service? Do we need to be in worship in order for our prayers to be heard? Do we need to have anointing oil applied to our forehead before God will choose in our favor? What if I’m feeling pretty well and things are going good, do I have any reason to go to a healing service?
A Healing Service is a unique opportunity to be reminded of God’s ever-present, life-changing love. A healing service is a chance to come to God for healing and a new beginning, whether for yourself or on behalf of someone you care about. It is designed to provide folks a way of intentionally asking for God’s intervention through song, the preached Word, and prayer. We’re promised that God hears our prayers—always—but joining with our community gathered together in faith we have the benefit of having support all around us. During the service, an invitation will be offered that individuals can choose to be anointed and blessed (consistent with the words from the fifth chapter of the book of James…
“13 Are any among you suffering? They should pray. Are any cheerful? They should sing songs of praise. 14 Are any among you sick? They should call for the elders of the church and have them pray over them, anointing them with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 The prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise them up; and anyone who has committed sins will be forgiven.” No matter how well we feel or how good things seem, we always need God’s blessing in order to be completely whole.
