Health & Wellness

Our mission at Unity is to provide support and encouragement for the health, well-being, and wholeness of our congregation. This group recognizes the integral relationship between body, mind, and spirit, as we strive to be the persons God calls us to be. When we are well, we help others be well.

Our Health Ministries Team Focuses on:

  • Hosting blood pressure checks by having nurses available on various Sunday’s throughout the year to assist our congregation in monitoring blood pressure
  • Offering CPR/AED (Automated External Defibrillator) classes two times per year and additional first aid classes are offered periodically.
  • Providing medical equipment closest for members that are in need of medical equipment for a short period of time including wheelchairs, walkers, canes. etc.
  • Providing first aid kits throughout the church and offering fitness activities throughout the year to encourage an active, healthy lifestyle.
