    Prayer Training Luncheon
    We apologize for the inconvience but the August 28 event has been canceled.

    Prayer Training Luncheon





    Powerful Prayers Produce Wonderful Results

    The most frequent prayer requests most of us receive are for healing. Jesus healed people everywhere he went, and so did Paul and Peter.  We are directly encouraged to pray for the sick in the book of James. This is a vital topic for all of us!

    We will address such questions as, "Is it God's will to heal everyone" and "Why doesn't God seem to answer prayers and allow such suffering" and many more.

    We will learn how to use our spiritual gifts of wisdom, knowledge, discernment and healing as we pray with people.  There will be time for some helpful elements of this type of intercessory prayer.

    A light lunch will be served and a $5.00 donation is appreciated.  Payable online or by cash or check at the event.

    Prayer Shawl Ministry

    First Wednesday | 11:00 a.m. | The Commons | Oak Brook

    We want people to know that they are seen in their season of struggle and hardship. Prayer shawls and blankets are a tangible expression of the love of God and His people. Our hope is that as people wrap themselves in this gift they will be reminded of His tenderness and care during the highs and lows of life.

    Our group gathers monthly to pray while knitting or crocheting prayer shawls, as well as sewing prayer blankets. We enjoy community, praying together and using our creative gifts to serve the people of Christ Church. If you’re interested in joining us or starting a group at another time contact Jean Blidy at jblidy@ChristChurch.us or 630.321.3936.
