healingService for Wholeness and Healing

This is a half-hour service which provides the opportunity for the members of the congregation to recieve the sacrament of anointing for healing and wholeness.  The ministry of anointing was common in the early Christian movement and was a part of several sacramental celebrations of the Church. Anointing of the sick with laying-on-of-hands is specifically mentioned in the New Testament in the Letter to James (5.14). 

This ministry is offered to those who wish to participate. During the service consider those aspects of your life where healing and wholeness are, for you, a special priority.  Make them your special offering in the course of the silent prayer. Remember especially those needing healing and wholeness during the Intersessions.
