Within the body of Christ, no one is exempt from becoming ill. People have developed ailments from the common cold or flu to deadly illnesses, such as cancer and heart disease. Regardless of one’s plight, we can be assured the Lord’s desire is for us to be in good health.
As healthcare professionals, we believe God has allowed us to be in a place of influence to affect change within the body of Christ and to our surrounding communities. Growing concerns of a rapidly declining healthcare system calls for the body of Christ to be equipped with information that can optimize our health, so we can live physically fit. The Health Team at First United is committed to providing educational resources and information that will enhance the church and surrounding community. The Team serves as a conduit by presenting various topics relating to: Hypertension, diabetes, depression, and prostate cancer, to name a few; as well as perform screening for blood pressure and nutritional information to its members, as necessary.
In addition, with the assistance of our community partners, an annual health fair may occur, which provides resources to assist our congregation, friends and the community in achieving a healthy life style. The Health Team will continue to provide these services, as needed. Further, as we endeavor to serve the body of Christ and surrounding community, we pray that lives will be enriched to build the Kingdom of Heaven.
