Healing Ministries

Written by susansnook@thenativity.net on Apr 30, 2013



At Nativity, we believe that Christ is the healer: through prayer, we draw closer to God and allow him to heal our bodies, minds, and spirits.  Sometimes the healing Christ brings is physical, giving strength to our bodies.  Sometimes, it is spiritual, bringing comfort and emotional strength.  Sometimes, it is the healing of a community, surrounding us with God’s love in the presence of other people.


At Nativity, we have a variety of healing ministries, from weekly healing prayers at our 6:00 p.m. Wednesday evening prayer service, to healing prayers offered after communion every week at our 10:00 service by lay ministers, to monthly anointing for healing offered at our 10:00 service by our priest.

In addition, our Community of Hope program is a year-long training program for lay persons who feel called to a ministry of healing through visiting and prayer.  Community of Hope members are commissioned to visit people in hospitals or shut-ins at home, and to take communion to those who cannot be with us for Sunday services.  Please contact Pastor Susan for more information about the Community of Hope program, at susansnook@thenativity.net.
