Parish Health Ministry
Parish Health Ministry helps us to grow in our faith and improve our health. With this holistic approach to health promotion, the mind, body and spirit are intertwined to improve wellness for individuals and families in our congregation and in our community.
Although the Bible does not give explicit instructions regarding how many calories we should ingest or how many minutes we should exercise each day, scripture does outline the important principles about how we are to live.
Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, which you have from God? You are not your own; you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
It is the responsibility of all Christians to live in a way that pleases God, caring for his or her mind, body and spirit. The Parish Health Ministry will create opportunities for each of us to work toward this goal and become healthier and happier!
