Health Ministry

Walk to Bethlehem image
“Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God,
and that you are not your own?  For you have been purchased at a price.  
Therefore, glorify God in your body.”
1 Corinthians 6: 19-20
 
 

The St. Andrew’s Health Ministry, which includes the Special Needs Ministry (One-In-Christ), works with other parish ministries and the community to promote the Church’s role as a healing “field hospital”. It includes spiritual, physical, emotional and psychological aspects of health.

Membership is open to all. A medical background or degree is not needed to be a member. Potluck meetings are held every month on the first Saturday of each month at either Inwood House or St. Andrew’s All Purpose Room. Next meeting: 12/5/15 at from 12-1:30 at Inwood.

  • To report miles every Friday during Advent, use this online form, class envelope (SAA students only), or bulletin board* envelope

*Health Ministry bulletin board is located to the immediate right of the church’s main entrance between the church and school. It is updated regularly with information received from the Holy Cross Faith Community Nurse Network and other sources.
