Health Ministries 2017
“The Mission of the Health Ministries Team is to serve humanity and spread God’s love by im- proving the physical, mental and spiritual health of those in our First United Methodist Church of Gilford/Laconia community and the community at large.”
Blood Pressure Clinics: The Blood Pressure Clinic continues on the 4th Sun- day of the month. Come in get your pressure checked. Kathy can also check your weight and answer questions that you may have.
Visitation: The visitation team has continued but was not as organized as it had been. This is being worked on especially for the New Year.
Activities: Health Ministries has sponsored several outside activities this past winter and spring; the “Let’s Get Outside”, and then the “Vitamin N (N for nature)” walks this spring. There was a Daniel Plan class this past winter as well.
Resources: Kathy has continued to add to the resources available in the library. These books are on the shelves near the closet in the library. There are books on diet, exercise, faith, and many health issues. If you would like to take one with you please leave Kathy a note so she knows who has the book. There is also an extensive file of information from many of the agencies in the area. It is Kathy’s goal to make sure she can help refer you to someone who can help you with an issue you may be having.
Kathy Smith would like to thank everyone on the Health Ministries team and all those who have supported her in this mission. Please let her know about your health concerns. If she can’t help you she may know someone who can. This summer Kathy moved her office to her apartment to hopefully help her focus on what needs to be done. She is more than happy to take calls or meet you at the church when the need arises.
