Health Ministry: Educate and Empower
Common Ground established Health Ministry in January 2018. Operating under the mandate for “SHALOM” in Isaiah 65, our goal is universal human flourishing in body, mind and spirit. We progress towards our health goal by creating an environment conducive to good health at our church, educating our congregants about health issues, and encouraging our congregants to take actions to promote their own individual health.
– We offer educational “pop-ups” and monthly Health Ministry moments (see below).
– We also offer the 8-week training program for “Congregational Health Promoters” and are in the middle of training our first cohort.
Health ministry was established in January 2018 under the direction of Amy Rex Smith, PhD, RN, Faith Community Nurse and Bradford M. Smith, PhD, Licensed Psychologist.
