We all have different kinds of hurts, pains and stress in our lives. For some, it's physical; for others, it's emotional or spiritual. If you are facing surgery or encountering brokenness, hurt or pain in your life, come to this special service of healing and prayer. If you are thirsty and in need of God's refreshment in your life, come!

This service consists of a time of worship and singing, reading of Scripture, Communion, a talk/presentation about God's healing power and a time of personal prayer.
