Build each other up and encourage one another, just as you are doing. I Thessalonians 5:11
It is traditional in St. Paul’s that we have a “healing service” in a month where there are five Sundays. On Healing Sundays, someone is chosen who needs an extra note of encouragement to receive cards from our congregation. The recipient does not have to be a member of St. Paul’s. We pass out cards to the congregation who then sign them or some take them home to write a little message. The recipient usually receives about 60 cards in the mail.
The cards are received with great surprise and joy! It is so good for someone going through stressful times and/or discouraging times to know that others are thinking of them and praying for them. A card is a very simple gesture but can mean so much to the receiver.
If you know of someone that needs extra encouragement or prayer and would benefit from our card ministry, please contact Patty Fish by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
