Summer 2014

Every 4th Sunday Blood Pressure Clinic,

In the Fellowship Hall during coffee hour. Come and get checked out even if you've seen the doctor this year it never hurts to get your Blood Pressure checked on a regular basis.

Stay Healthy this Summer

Spring is here and summer is coming. Time to get supplies to protect yourself as you enjoy the great outdoors. This year it is predicted to be a bad year for ticks. So remem- ber to do a full body check after being outside. If you have been bitten, and especially if you get a rash, call your doctor. There are good treatments if done early. If you use re- pellent it must have DEET and the safest way to apply it is to shoes socks and clothing.
Remember to protect yourself from the damaging rays of the sun. Use a high number sun block and apply it often.


Office hours: 12:00 Noon – 3:00 PM the first Thursday of the month.

Now that I have a set schedule at work I'm going to set some time aside to have office hours at the church on a regular basis. If you want to learn more about the Health Ministries pro- gram or have something you want to talk to me about come by. I will be in the Library. Remember that anything we talk about is confidential.The first Daniel Plan groups have finished the six week course and now we are plan- ning the next step. The first Wednesday of each month starting in June, those who can will get together to meet in their groups then come together for an activity. The first meeting will be at the church; after that it will be up to the group. Stace at Wesley Woods is looking to start another group as well. Now is the time to put what we have learned to work.


Stay healthy and enjoy the wonderful world that God has provided. Shalom
