Having been called as disciples of Christ, the mandate given to us by our Lord is that, “ the worshipping congregation “ of CSI Divya Shanthi Church gets engaged in teaching, preaching and healing mission of Christ on this earth. This challenges us to reflect upon how meaningfully we can engage ourselves in this mission so that by seeing our good work people will glorify God.
The Medical wing has been engaged in equipping the worshipping congregation to become a “Healing community.” In this process, its contribution is very much forthcoming under the able and dynamic leadership of Mrs. Thangam during the past few years. We praise and thank God for his services.
There have been occasions when screening camps for medical problems were held in the premises of Divya Shanthi Church and CSI Byappanahalli church. Few lectures were organized for the congregation on Sundays after the worship services in the morning when eminent people were invited to speak on subjects like heart diseases. A small medical chest has been installed in the worshipping hall to provide first aid.
Having been equipped with several very practical and feasible proportions by the members of the health team, we look forward to widen our horizon in this perspective. In this process, we wish to enlarge our vision as Jabez prayed for enlarging the territory and wish to become a healing community at large to carry out the message written in Exodus 15:26 - “ I am the Lord who healeth you.”
We wish to launch our mission to:
The congregation will engage in celebrating Healing ministry Sunday on one Sunday each year, preferably when all churches in India (both Catholic and Protestants) celebrate this day on the second Sunday of the month of February.
We thank and praise God for having so graciously chosen us to serve in the healing ministry of Christ on this earth and enabling us to glorify his holy name.
