Health Ministry
is a group of health care professionals and lay persons whose purpose is to promote holistic health within our congregation through health screening, health education and health referrals. From the early days of Methodism, John Wesley recognized and wrote about the interconnectedness of health with spiritual, mental and physical well-being.
