Health

The Health Ministry of The Chapel is comprised of a director as well as many healthcare volunteers who, without their help, the ministry could not exist. Our Health Ministry serves to help meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of The Chapel family.

The Bible has much to say about the importance of the interrelationship of body, mind and spirit… “Then He sent them out to tell everyone about the coming of the Kingdom of God and to heal the sick.” (Luke 9:2) LASB

The goal of our Health Ministry is to promote optimum wellness through the healing resources of the congregation and the surrounding community.
