Health & Wellness
Health and Wellness Committee
Formed in October of 2005
This ministry was formed as an opportunity to connect with one another around the wider dimensions of "Health". We seek to become partners in our health care and engage one another in a continuum of physical, social and spiritual well-being.
Some opportunities in this ministry have included:
SHAWL MINISTRY: We have a very active shawl ministry program which meets weekly in the Parlor for knitting, crocheting and conversation. We have a blessing ceremony in the church service from time to time.
(see SHAWL MINISTRY tab for more information)
NUTRITION: This past summer we offered a table during coffee hour that was filled with local foods, plants and a friendly face to offer support and answer health related questions
CPE/AED Training: The committee offered training this past year to members and friends of UCCLC.
PARISH NURSE PROGRAM: We have participated in the Parish Nurse program for many years. We have offered Blood Pressure Clinics and sponsored programs with featured speakers. Currently we are re-evaluating this program. More news to come.....
