Health Ministries

The Health Ministry attempts to combine the physical with the spiritual, hopefully resulting in the health of mind, body and spirit.  In an attempt to achieve these goals, we have the following activities in place.

Office hours are held every Sunday from 8-12:30.  Any other time date or time is by appointment.  Call 859-466- 4540.  Any private consultation can take place on Sunday or by appointment.

Blood Pressure Screening – is officially held on the 3rd Sunday of the Month, but many people have their blood pressure taken more often due to new medication, stress etc.  Just come into the office any Sunday and ask.

The Bereavement Ministry cares for the grieving person(s) for one year.  This is accomplished through letters, cards, poems or visits (requested) given each month, which helps the grieving person(s) know they are not alone and that what they are feeling is normal.

Every October we offer flu shots on one Sunday from 8-12:30.  Just bring your Medicare card for people over 65 and $20 for everyone else from age 5 and up.  You may also tell friends and family about our flu shot Sunday as they are welcome to get their flu shot as well.

Each month we a have a new learning opportunity in our Backdoor Reading.  Located in each restroom on the cubicle doors the “captive” audience learns something new.  Click here for this months copy of the Backdoor Reading.

Suggestions for new programs or other ways to improve the Health Ministry are always welcomed and appreciated.
