The mission of the Health and Wellness Ministry is to increase awareness of health and wellness issues that are prevalent in our congregation and promote a healthy lifestyle within our congregation and the community at large.

"He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds" (Psalm 147:3).

The Health and Wellness Ministry recognizes that the Lord uses and gives physicians wisdom and knowledge regarding the treatment of health and disease.  With this in mind, the goals and objectives of the Health and Wellness Ministry are to:

 

  • Provide resources for the congregation and their loved ones living with chronic illnesses through prayer, support groups, and counseling.
  • Provide at least one workshop designed for the Open Fire family to study what God’s Word says about health, healing and illness
  • Make sure healthy foods are prepared for all gatherings the Church sponsors
  • Recruit and train members that respond effectively and in a timely manner to the health needs of the congregation
  • Promote the wellness and health of the congregation (adults, young adults, teens, and children)
  • Work closely with members and community agencies in the health care industry
  • Provide domestic violence prevention and grief training
