Wellness Committee

The Wellness Committee is part of the Relational Ministry Team. We are current or past care providers or members interested in health related activities and pastoral care for our members. We are always open to new membership on the Committee and to ideas. Some of our activities include providing blood pressures for members on the first Sunday of each month, sending grief books to members who have lost loved ones for the first 11 months after their loss, writing a monthly health-related article for the Horizon, and contacting shut-in members for pastoral care needs in conjunction with the pastor. Pastoral needs can include rides to services or a grocery store, home communion, just visiting someone who desires it. Not every member of the Committee does all these things and we are assisted by about 18 people from the congregation who are not members of our Committee. In the future we will work closely with trained BeFrienders of the congregation. We are excited to answer any questions you may have and hope you will consider joining us!

Joy in Movement (JIM). This ministry is a low-impact aerobics class that uses a mixture of secular, sacred, and contemporary Christian music to get you moving and soothe your soul. The class is structured so that participants can either step it up a notch or adapt movements to their particular needs. The class includes stretching and strengthening. It Meets Tuesdays and Thursdays in the Fellowship Hall. Questions? Call Anne Miller at 463-0462 or Spencer Gerwin at 266-5202.

Prayer Shawl Ministry. This ministry is a part of the Wellness Ministry. Crafters make prayer shawls and lap robes which are then blessed in Worship. The prayer items are then packaged with a prayer card and kept in tubs in the narthex so that any congregation member may take them to someone going through a difficult physical, emotional, or spiritual time.
