Healing Ritual

Sunday, March 24, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. During Worship

Last year, we began the practice of offering a healing ritual four times a year as part of worship service. The response was very positive and our first healing ritual for 2019 will take place on Sunday, March 23rd. All will be invited to participate, either by coming to the front of the church, to kneel (or stand, if unable) for a blessing from one of the elders. You may come, requesting healing for yourself, or, if you wish, for another. You do not need to disclose any condition that you do not wish to. The elders will pray with you, either holding a hand, or laying a hand on your shoulder, as you prefer and anoint you with oil. At the end of the ritual, we will sing a hymn and be dismissed with the benediction.

Somerville is full of wonderful restaurants, so our Social Activities Committee has introduced a Dinner Club to experience the best our town has to offer.
