Healing Prayer Services

Our Healing Prayer Services provide comfort, support and healing for many difficult life situations. Leave the busyness of the day behind and take time to humbly come before our God.

The candle-lit sanctuary brings a feeling of peace. Special music and scripture readings remind us that God is always ready to receive our worries, concerns, illnesses and heartaches. We receive comfort in the support and prayers of others and know the Holy Spirit will be with us wherever we go.

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28 (NIV)
