"Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise. Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord." James 5:13-14
-- Dear Parents, Friends and Neighbors --
Please accept this
to attend our next Healing Service at
First Lutheran-Manhattan Beach
Saturday, October 31, 2015
Doors open at 10:00 a.m.
Service begins at 10:30 a.m.,
and lasts about 1 hour, 15 minutes.
Pastor John and Deacon Paul
will be assisted by
Elders Art Vanick and Rick Jensen
Music is provided by Ray Knehnetsky
We will worship together, with responsive readings
from the Bible, sing a special hymn recalling Jesus’ healing ministry, confess our sinful natures and receive the
assurance of God’s forgiveness;
and then, bring our needs to Him in prayer,
with laying on of hands and anointing with oil,
all in accord with the encouragement of Holy Scripture
as it is found in the Epistle of James 5:13-16.
We’ve celebrated with joy the gradual healing of a
daughter with cancer, and a Pre-school mother’s story of
her young child’s ailing heart being repaired.
We also intercede for loved ones not present who
are sick or recovering from injury.
We believe Jesus does the healing
while by faith we trust in His promises
Afterwards, we’ve prepared a short reception in the Parish Hall for all who come to the Healing Service…
with coffee and tea, sweetbreads, fresh fruit, and yogurt cups.
It’s a great time to talk and get to know one another
while sharing our stories in a relaxing atmosphere.
