Healing Ministry

Church of the Redeemer continues the healing ministry of Jesus in several ways.  One of these is offering prayer, laying on of hands, and anointing with oil to those seeking healing, after the distribution of communion at the 9:00 o'clock service on the first Sunday of every month.  Healing ministry is also offered at the Spanish-language service at 7:00 p.m. every Wednesday evening.
