Anointing and Healing Prayer
​Anointing and healing prayer is an ancient practice of the church based upon the needs of God's people. It is not a miracle work or "holy roller" act but a holy rite of the church that helps people express their need and receive the blessing of prayer for healing. Each Sunday during the Ancient Future worship series we will offer anointing and healing prayer. If you would like to have the anointing and prayer just stop over at the station after you have received the bread and wine. Lay people will be ready to use the oil, make the sign of the cross on your forehead and offer a short prayer for healing.
