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. The prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise them up; and anyone who has committed sins will be forgiven. (James 5:14-15)
Each week during the distribution of communion, elders of our church are available to pray with you and anoint you for healing. This is what Jesus calls us to do for one another.
Our healing prayer ministers are ready to listen, pray with you, and anoint you for healing. They will always hold your prayer requests in confidence. Whether you want to heal a relationship, your physical self, or pray for someone else’s healing, you are welcome.
Healing prayer is one of the ways we respond to God’s love as a congregation. Offering healing prayer and trusting that God will respond with healing, wholeness, and encouragement are ways we give thanks for the life and love that God offers. The prayers and anointing we offer are an expression of the reality of our love for one another as sisters and brothers in Christ. We give thanks to God by giving love and compassion to one another.
Yours in Christ,
