Health Ministries

Health Ministry is a group of people who bring their knowledge, experience, and  willingness to serve, so they can respond to the health needs of people at First pres and in the community.   As people of God, we are responsible for our own health as well as the health of others. Everyone needs health, healing and wholeness in body, mind and spirit.

WHO IS A HEALTH MINISTER?  Everyone!!!  You don’t need to be a health professional, everyone can be part of promoting and living a healthy life.  Parish Nurses are part of health ministry, and are there to assist with health-related issues.

<< These links, on a variety of health topics, have been previewed by the Health Ministry Team. The Health Ministry Team knows that there is a wealth of medical and life-style information available on the Internet. Not all of these sites though are equally reliable and accurate. As always, do not rely on such sources over and above the advice of your own physician.
