Healing Prayer / Prophetic Ministry

Healing prayer and prophetic ministry are offered at First Church by appointment at a time of your convenience.

Healing Prayer: Receive prayer for physical healing or other need in your life from a small team of caring believers ministering in the love and power of God.

Prophetic Ministry: Receive ministering words of edification, encouragement, and comfort in the spirit of 1 Corinthians 14:1, 3-4, from a team of trained believers. These ministers are learning to move in the gift of prophecy, knowing and prophesying in part (1 Corinthians 13:9). They listen to the Holy Spirit and share what they hear. The recipient is to judge their words according to the Word of God (1 Thessalonians 5:20-21).

Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 

I Thessalonians 5:16-18
