Health + Wellness

Mind, body and spirit all work together as a whole.

A healthy diet and consistent exercise speak to spiritual obedience.  
A healthy body impacts the spirit in a positive way and helps one to love God, oneself and others.

The mission of the Health and Wellness Ministry is to help the congregation and community care for themselves and one another…to attain, maintain and/or regain the best possible WHOLE-person health and wellness of body, mind, and spirit -- following the example of Christ and guided by the Holy Scriptures.  

We are the Health & Wellness Ministry Members

This Month's Challenge

Join us!  We meet every 4th Tuesday of the month at 6:30pm on Zoom
Key components to prioritizing health revolve around taking preventive measure against disease and illness as well as early detection to stop health issues from potentially becoming worse, including:

  • Eating a healthy diet including fruits and vegetables

  • Engaging in regular physical activity (150 minutes a week)
    • Find a partner to workout with
    • Join a recreation league at your local community center
    • sign up for group personal training sessions
    • simply make a routine out of regular walks.
 
  • Reducing or quitting commercial tobacco use

  • Making a point to pray, meditate and study the Word daily

  • Managing your mental health 
    • Stress management
    • limiting use of alcohol and dependence on drugs
    • Get enough sleep
 
  • Attending regular health check-ups
    • Establishing baselines for factors such as blood pressure and cholesterol
    • Colonoscopy screening
    • Diabetes
    • Depression
    • Weight
    • PSA (a screening test for prostate cancer risk)—and monitoring how they change over time—will enable the provider to catch potentially dangerous conditions early, when they’re still treatable
