We promote the health and healing of our church members and the community regarding body, mind, and spirit. Our Health and Wellness Ministry is a safe, growing, biblically sound ministry providing the support, prayers, and tools that people need to become physically, spiritually, and emotionally healthier.
The purpose of this ministry is to serve the Lord by providing health connections to people that
Meet the spiritual, physical, psychological, and social needs of the congregation and the community.
The Gospels are filled with stories of Jesus healing people, from the blind and lame to the deaf and brokenhearted. Healing and wellness were important aspects of Jesus’ ministry. Toward that end, the Church recently launched a Health and Wellness Ministry which seeks to foster health and wellbeing among members of the church and the community.
