November 2018 Events
Meet Friends | Strengthen Faith | Share Christ
Tuesday, November 6 | 6:30-9pm | Royal Oak Taphouse | Royal Oak
Do you want to be healed? Jesus not only brought healing to hearts and souls, He also gave sight to the blind, hearing to the deaf, made paralyzed people walk again. Did God’s healing miracles end after the apostles died? Or does God truly heal people now in miraculous ways? Join us as Patrick Reis of Encounter Ministries explores how God heals today, and how we can understand healing prayer and miracles in the context of our Catholic faith and evangelization, sharing stories of true miracles done through the power of Jesus. This is a special Theology on Tap that you will not want to miss. God wants to heal you in every way. There will be opportunities to receive healing prayer on this night if you desire, so please come and bring your friends. We expect the Holy Spirit to make His healing presence manifest. We expect to encounter Jesus.
