Health & Wholeness

BACK

You wouldn’t expect to enjoy a healthy, happy life eating only one meal every Sunday. Neither would you  expect  your spiritual life to thrive on a Sundays-only “diet.” We care about the whole person: spiritual, physical and emotional health, and we have programs, classes and groups to fit your needs, no matter where you are in life.

We think it’s important to belong and to explore what we believe. Being part of a group is a way to connect us to God, and to learn to love and accept one another, as well as understand better what we believe.

We believe that God has made each of us uniquely, and we are physical people who need to take care of ourselves and our health.

Community Events

We offer our local community several annual events that require much planning and hours of volunteer labor. Members and friends of the church give their time and effort to present such favorites as the wildly popular Live Nativity, the fun-filled Easter Eggstravaganza, the meaningful Community Easter Sunrise Service and the charming Blessing of the Animals.


Besides delighting our church’s neighbors, planning and presenting these events affords our members opportunities to build lasting and cherished friendships. More events are in the works!
