The Church of the Atonement in Carnegie is holding a Healing Service Wednesday evening, July 3rd, from 6:30-7:30. This sacrament is offered the FIRST WEDNESDAY of every month.
Here is a general and generous invitation from Father Ben, the Priest at Atonement.
“We, who are The Church of the Atonement, are continuing our community Public Services of Healing. We host A Public Service of Healing the First (1st) Wednesday evening of each month: June 5th; July 3rd; August 7th; September 4th; October 2nd; November 6th; and December 4th, 2019.
We are doing this to obediently make God’s healing power through faithful Christian ministry readily available within the community where we live, work, and minister. There are many hurting people in our midst who are much in need of the LORD’s gracious healing in body, mind, and spirit. Over one-third (1/3) of the Gospel accounts about Jesus’ earthly ministry was His healing of all who were sick and would receive His healing. He sent His disciples out to do the same. He continues to send us today! We want to be faithful and obedient vessels who facilitate God’s healing grace and power for all who seek it. All things are possible in The LORD!
An intentional Healing Service allows us to use whatever time is needed to pray with and for anyone who is seeking The LORD’s healing touch.
Please come yourself to ask the LORD for any healing that you may need in body, mind, or spirit. Please invite your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and acquaintances to come to partake of the Public Services of Healing. Pass the word so others will know that they can avail themselves of this loving power from God’s grace.
We are not into sheep stealing. I praise The LORD for people who are faithfully worshiping and serving The LORD Jesus Christ in other congregations. Unfortunately, not all congregations include the Healing Ministry as part of their Christian ministry. People are welcome to come to The Church of the Atonement to participate in Healing Services and I encourage them to continue to be faithful members of their own faith communities. For the unchurched, this is certainly an outreach and evangelism opportunity. People being healed is a wonderful way for people to experience God’s grace and love and thus come to know Him personally.”
I hope to see you on Wednesday evening — Thank you and God Bless!
In Jesus’ Love, Ben +
The Rev. Benjamin R. “Ben” Wright
