Monthly, we join together in the Chapel for the ancient tradition of laying-on of hands in prayer and anointing with holy oil. The service includes an opportunity to receive prayer for healing of body, mind, or spirit.
God has sent healing to His people from the beginning of human existence. Beginning in the Old Testament, oil has been used for blessing and healing among God's people. Once Jesus ushered in a world-altering era of grace, the Church received even greater gifts of healing through the Holy Spirit.

James 5:14-16 (NRSV)
14 Are any among you sick? They should call for the elders of the church and have them pray over them, anointing them with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 The prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise them up; and anyone who has committed sins will be forgiven. 16 Therefore confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another, so that you may be healed. The prayer of the righteous is powerful and effective.
