In response to God’s command for us to love and care for one another, the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church health ministry committee supports and partners with the Parish Nurse in its mission to promote spiritual, emotional and physical well-being through its connection with the church and community. The health ministry committee’s mission will be achieved through spiritual support, educational programs and the promotion of healthy lifestyles.
The following are typical responsibilities of the Health Ministry Committee:
- To act as a source of influence in the life of our church community to ensure that the stewardship of health is expressed in worship, education and networks of support and recreation.
- To promote understanding of the importance of caring for the whole person.
- To encourage people to integrate all segments of their lives with their faith & health.
- To function as a safe resource for health information, encouraging healthy behaviors and providing support to those who are ill or in need among us.
Health ministry committee meets the second Thursday of each month at 7:00pm in the KOB library.
