Health Activities

HEALTH MINISTRIES

Mind, Body, and Spirit Programs

Upcoming programs are also announced in our

Sunday Morning Tide bulletins and Monthly Tidings Newsletters.

 

Lent is the time to grow spiritually and/or improve the Body, Mind, and Spirit connection. Many people try to either give up an activity or food that they truly enjoy, while others prefer to do a health activity to improve their body, mind & soul. Perhaps you want to focus on nutrition, exercise, breathing and meditation or scripture etc.

If you have a suggestion for a group or individual activity that we can focus on or if you have any questions please call Parish Nurse, Kathy Williams.
