Health Ministries

We are a team of professional and interested health care advocates and leaders whose goal is to challenge and assist the congregation and surrounding community in achieving better health through education, fitness, physical screenings, mental well-being,  spiritual support, and resources using a holistic approach.  We believe that the body is the “temple of God” and must be honored as such.

Health Emphasis - September

Yes our darlings are back in school! But while you are sitting on the bleachers watching your child practice for sports, taking swimming lessons, rehearsing music, etc., take advantage of the time to exercise.  Drop the work and social devices and get out on that track or walk the sidewalk.  Take some laps in the pool, take an exercise class offered in the same location, etc.  If you have smaller children with you, run and play outdoors with them. They need exercise too and children play less due to computer technology these days. Make the time count for everyone.  If you think this is too difficult just try walking the perimeter of the school building or walk around the block a couple of times. You will be proud of yourself for having accomplished your exercise requirement for the day.
