Worship Sunday at 9:30 am
Held in the Community Room.
Healing Touch is a form of complementary medicine that supports the body’s natural healing processes. Christianity has a long tradition of laying on of hands for healing; similar practices have spanned many other cultures and religions all over the world.
For some time, our church has been hosting a monthly Healing Circle. A group of women and men in the Mount Vernon, Lisbon and surrounding areas trained in Healing Touch or Energy Work gather together to volunteer our time to extend a time of prayer and energy work to our local community.
Healing Touch can be beneficial for illness, chronic pain, depression or simply to receive a “boost.” People wanting to receive a Healing Touch treatment are invited to register for a 30 minute session that involves a laying on of hands and a 15 minute prayer or meditation including an offering of gratitude and petition. This 30 minute energy treatment and 15 minute prayer time takes place in a group setting with each practitioner working one-on-one with a recipient. All are welcome!
Recipient spaces are limited to the amount of volunteer practitioners that commit their time and skill every month.
To register for a spot, go to this website and follow the links: http://mtvchc.wix.com/mount-vernon-chc
In addition to hosting the Healing Circle, our congregation has also provided prayer shawls for recipients to use during their session and take home with them if they desire.
