Health and Wellness Ministry

The Health & Wellness Ministry's goal is to educate, provide resources, and advocate for better overall health physically, mentally, and spiritually within our church family and community. As stated in the Bible, our body is the dwelling place, or temple of the Holy Spirit (I Corinthians 6:19). Therefore, we strive to help ourselves and others keep a well maintained temple to serve its God-given purpose. We, therefore, believe that the journey toward optimum health is an important part of holy living.


The CDC has recommended people wear face coverings in public. Here are a few easy ways to make your own homemade face mask.

Keep in mind that this type of mask isn’t ideal for health care workers dealing with COVID-19 because it allows tiny droplets to seep through parts of the mask. But these masks are helpful for those of us venturing out in public to buy groceries or run to the pharmacy.  

World  Health Organization reminds us that masks are only effective when they’re used in combination with social distancing of 6ft and frequent proper hand washing.  If you do wear a mask you must know how to use it and dispose of it properly. When using their own cloth masks ideally wash them after each use or frequently machine-wash them. And of course, follow all state and local protocols and avoid leaving the house unless it’s absolutely necessary.

Many Blessings, Pauline
