The mission of the Health Ministry is to provide an environment that endorses a Holistic approach to health. We promote total health in the physical, mental, spiritual, and social well being of our members.

There can only be healthy spirituality when we are physically healthy. Because of this we minister through the NEWSTART model. NEWSTART is an acronym for:

N - proper NUTRITION
E - daily EXERCISE
W - an abundance of WATER
S - adequate exposure to SUNSHINE
T - TEMPERANCE in all things
A - lots of fresh AIR
R - adequate and regular REST
T - and settled TRUST in God's love and care.

This ministry will fulfill its mission through various programs and events in the church and in the community. Including:

  • Health Seminars
