A Model for Healthy Living

January 2018!

    A New Year is upon us, so how will you make this year better than last year. Our health and wellness is in a constant state of change. So no matter where you are, there is always room for improvement.

    This month I am concentrating on a Model for Healthy Living. This model looks at 7 area’s in our lives that we need to keep balanced to stay health. They are Faith Life, Movement, Medical, Work, Emotional, Nutrition, Friends & Family.

    On the Health Ministries page you will find all the information presented each Sunday for the 4 weeks of January.

 

Please let Kathy know if you would like some help with one or all of these area’s of your life. She can be reached at
health@nhlakesumchurch.org or called at 603-524-1330.

Memorial Fund Use Policy

For Your Information Memorial Fund Use Policy
    The Memorial Fund is made up of gifts to the church, generally in remembrance of a loved one. The Fund is the responsibility of the Board of Trustees and may be used as it deems appropriate for non-budgeted needs.
    All requests for expenditures from the Memorial Fund not initiated by the Board of Trustees must be presented to them before any purchase is made. A Memorial Fund Request Slip needs to be filled out by a designated member of the requesting committee and approved by the Board of Trustees. This slip should then be attached to the Request for Payment Slip that must have either the bill for the item or a receipt that shows who paid for it and needs to be reimbursed. This slip must be signed by a requesting committee member and a member of the Finance Committee and then put in the Treasurer’s drawer for payment.
