The Church Health Center seeks to reclaim the Church’s biblical commitment to care for our bodies and our spirits. Our ministries provide healthcare for the working uninsured and promote healthy bodies and spirits for all. But healthcare is about more than just prescribing pills. We at the Church Health Center believe we have a responsibility to take care of the bodies God gave us, so we have been committed from our beginning to health education and prevention. The Fellowship is available at our wellness facility. Our wellness ministry now offers everything from personalized exercise plans and cooking classes to group exercise classes and activities for children and teens. Church Health Center Wellness is open to the entire community with fees charged on a sliding scale based on family size and income.
For more than 30 years, Facing History and Ourselves has believed that education is the key to combating bigotry and nurturing democracy. Through a rigorous investigation of the events that led to the Holocaust, pivotal moments in the American Civil Rights Movement as well as other recent examples of genocide and mass violence, students in a Facing History class learn to combat prejudice with compassion, indifference with participation, and myth and misinformation with knowledge. Facing History and Ourselves works with educators throughout their careers to improve their effectiveness in the classroom, as well as their students’ academic performance and civic learning. FHAO does this work in many school environments including high need urban schools.
