What! Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost, which is in you, which ye have of God and ye are not your own? For ye are brought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s. I Corinthians 6:19-20
The Health Ministry offers educational programs and disseminates health information through displays, special appeal announcements, workshops, fairs, and health screenings. Two vital components of the ministry are the Walking in the Spirit Ministry and the First-to-Aid Ministry. We are not medical practitioners, but lay volunteers interested in informing the community-at-large about the importance of proper health care and the inherent health disparities that often plague minorities. Five main topics of focus are diabetes, heart disease, cancers, nutrition, and physical activity. Good health requires discipline in focusing our attention on each part of our being – mental, physical, spiritual, and emotional. Our continual prayer is that we become educated about our health, apply the knowledge learned, and be good stewards of our temples (bodies).
