God’s gift of healing comes to us in word, prayer and sign. Jesus healed many as a sign of the reign of God come near and sent the disciples to continue this work of healing — with prayer, the laying on of hands and anointing. (Evangelical Lutheran Worship, page 273, 276)
Privacy laws now prevent hospitals from informing churches when people are ill and hospitalized. So if you are hospitalized or recuperating at home, please contact the church office for a pastoral visit. One of the pastors will visit for prayers and offer to bring Holy Communion.
