Healing Service at ConneXion Worship

“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” (James 5:14).

slide-12On Sunday, June 1st, we will be offering a time of healing during the ConneXion worship services (9:00 and 11:11) in the Christian Life Ministries Center.  The United Methodist Church’s Book of Worship reminds us, “Spiritual healing is God’s work of offering persons balance, harmony, and wholeness of body, mind, spirit, and relationships through confession, forgiveness, and reconciliation.”  We seek God’s presence as our source of healing.  Anointing oil is used as a sign of the healing God is doing within us through the abiding presence of God’s Holy Spirit.  “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.”

You are invited to come and participate in this holy time of community and worship.
