Health Ministry becomes an integral part of pastoral care, it allows the church to take more seriously its role of healing. By enabling better understanding and better cooperation within our congregation and the community, the health ministry provides the human context that allays fears, frustrations, and confusion that sometimes is a detriment to the optimal health of an individual or congregation.

The Health Ministry Team is committed to:

  • Sharing Our Faith
  • Promoting Good Health through Education
  • Preventing and or Controlling Disease through Knowledge      and Support
