The mission of the Body of Christ™ Health & Wellness ministry is to provide information and organize activities that increase awareness about walking in health/wellness and caring for our bodies as temples of the Holy Spirit. Body of Christ™ was formed in 2009 to address normalcy in most churches - far too many overweight and out of shape people who are sick with chronic illness. This contradicts Christian belief that our bodies are temples to care for in a way that honors God.
"Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God's." 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
Various health/wellness activities take place throughout the year including opportunities to work in our Community Youth Garden.
