Health Ministries

Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31

Health Ministries are an integral part of the mission of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. The most important objective of the ministry is to help men, women and children reach their full potential, mentally, spiritually and physically.

Did you know Seventh-day Adventists have been recognized for their increased longevity? Such was the conclusion of an independent study conducted by National Geographic. Among the contributing factors to longevity, National Geographic noted key components of the typical Adventist's lifestyle, which include spirituality and a vegetarian diet! Seventh-day Adventists have long promoted a vegetarian diet as a healthier (not to mention Biblically prescribed) diet, and countless studies in the past few decades have now validated our belief.

Are you interested in trying some tasty vegetarian dishes? Click here for vegetarian recipes. Better yet, join us any Saturday for our weekly fellowship meal, held at 12:30, immediately following our worship service.

From time to time Health Ministries will sponsor various events and seminars for our church family, friends and community. These include:

  • Cooking Classes
  • Nutrition Lectures
  • Lifestyle Seminar
  • Smoking Cessation
  • CPR Classes
  • Weight Loss Events
