Those who have been attending New Hanover’s Second Sunday Celtic Worship services (each second Sunday of the month at 6 p.m.) have been introduced to an ancient, deep path into knowing and loving God through appreciation of the world God has provided and God’s work within this creation. Each service includes a celebration of the Lord’s Supper and a simple fellowship meal following the service.

On the evening of February 12, 2017, a new type of service was introduced: services which include Christian prayer for healing and wholeness. This service, which will be a regular part of our cycle of Celtic services, will be dedicated to prayers for healing and wholeness and anointing as a part of each prayer. No running about or fakery, only faithful prayer for those things that oppress us in body mind or spirit. Healing prayer is for everyone.

Prayers for Healing and Wholeness have been a part of the church’s life since the time of Jesus and the Apostles. We take seriously the scriptures where, among many other places, we are encouraged to pray for healing “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.” James 5:14. And we take just as seriously 1Corinthians 14:40 where Paul instruct that “all things should be done decently and in order.”

Join us as we seek God’s face to shine upon our deepest needs. The service begins at 6 p.m. with a soup and bread supper to follow.

April 9 – 6 p.m.
On Palm Sunday Evening there will be Second Sunday Celtic Worship. Eric Douglass will lead a service of candlelight and communion in the sanctuary.
