Healing

When Jesus sent out his disciples, the first thing He told them to do was to “heal the sick.” We believe that command still applies to us, and we have rejoiced to see what can happen when we bring our need for healing to the Lord. Whether the problem is physical, emotional, relational or spiritual, we pray always expecting a miracle. We are not opposed to the practice of medicine, but rather we see prayer for healing as an essential tool that God uses alongside the medical profession.

Prayer for healing is offered every Sunday during the worship service. As people go forward to receive communion, they may also go to one of the prayer ministers and ask for prayer for any personal need.

At least once a year St. George’s hosts a special weekend of healing ministry that we call The Healing Mission. This takes place over a Friday and Saturday when we invite a nationally known leader to minister and teach about Christian healing.

St. George’s has also been involved in the Order of St. Luke (OSL), an international, non-denominational ministry of Christian healing. More information about the OSL and the schedule of healing missions around the country is available on the “Links” page.
