Caring & health

“How God made me is amazing and wonderful. I praise God for that.”      Psalm 139:14 (NIRV)

Need healing in body, mind and spirit? Interested in maintaining and promoting good health for the glory of God's kingdom? The purpose of our caring and health ministry is to:

  • Reclaim the mission of Christ to heal and to preach the kingdom of God (Luke 9:2).
  • Inspire the church community to proclaim God's desire for abundant life (John 10:10).
  • Reaffirm and support the journey toward wholeness in body, mind and spirit.

 We strive to partner with you in caring for the gift of life by:

  • Providing resources for living well in all stages of life and in all aspects of life - body, mind and spirit.
  • Making healthy spiritual living a priority

Events throughout the year may include classes on nutrition and diet, exercise, parenting, advance care planning, funeral planning, and emotional health.
