Health Ministries is not only about assisting our members with living healthier, happier lives; it is also about reaching out to the surrounding community.

From demonstrating healthy principles at our Sabbath potluck to offering seminars on smoking cessation and stress free living we want to provide lots of ways for people to lead healthy and happy lives.

One of the ways we reach out to our community is through HELP (Healthy Eating and Living Program).
