The Service of Healing

HealingHandsSt Matthew offers three healing services a year at the Worship part of SAW, our Wednesday evening gathering with Supper, Activity, and Worship. They occur on the first Wednesday of May, August, and November. These services begin at 7:15 in the Nave.

At this service, all who sense the need for God’s healing in any aspect of their lives, may join in prayer for others and themselves. Each person may come to receive a word of blessing and prayer, and also receive a physical gesture of healing through the laying on of hands. You may also light a candle in memory or remembrance of a loved one or friend who may be in need of healing. In this service, we lift up and celebrate God’s presence with strength and comfort in the time of suffering, God’s promise of wholeness and peace, and God’s love embodied in the community of faith. Please come and join us for this very special service.

You do not have to attend the Supper or Activity parts of SAW in order to attend the healing service. However, if you would like to dine at SAW that evening, simply sign the reservation form at the Hospitality Desk in the Gathering Place, or call the church office at 637-7107. All are most welcome!
