The Rock of Habersham plans to spend both of its services Sunday focused on healing.
"We will be letting people know what divine healing is," said the Rev. Robin Martin, senior pastor.
Martin wants to target any misconceptions about healing during both services.
"I'll be explaining that the church is a spiritual hospital," Martin said. "Divine healing is when we receive God's word and it goes into our inner man, it's sort of an inside-out situation."
Martin, a Gainesville native, also will be sharing how he received healing 20 years ago and how he has seen hundreds healed since then.
Prior to coming to The Rock of Habersham, which currently has about 250 members, Martin spent seven years at The Rock of Gainesville.
At 10 a.m. each Tuesday, The Rock operates a "healing school" at the church in Demorest.
"God's word is the medicine," Martin said. "I'm a firm believer that the church heals people spiritually and then manifests in every part of their lives, spirit, soul and body."
The two healing services are set for 10:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. Sunday at the church, 350 Ansley Road in Demorest.
