Health Ministry along with Parish Health Nursing addresses health of the whole person in congregations. Wellness, health and healing are promoted in the church and in the community by a Health Ministry Team. Health of body, mind and spirit is encouraged through increased self-knowledge, personal responsibility and interdependence among God’s people here at Holy Trinity Support in crisis or in day to day struggles, and blood pressure screenings are only a few of the types of activities that could be offered.
The Health Ministry Team
February 14th was the beginning of the Health Ministry Team at Holy Trinity. Our Team ‘s goal is to combine the art and science of Health Care while being ever mindful of the strong relationship between faith and health. Through the church, we understand the meaning of health: harmony of body, mind, and spirit and living in relationship with God and with each other. Our Team hopes to make a difference in peoples’ lives through ministries for:
- Health promotion (ie. Education on a wide variety to topics through newsletter, bulletin & website articles);
- Individual care (ie. Blood pressure monitoring surveillance of health issues such as diabetes. Cardiac, caregiving concerns, etc.); and
- Spiritual care (ie. Support during difficult situations or support groups activities.
Through our actions, we can reaffirm the church’s role in ministering to the whole person: body, mind, and spirit. We can become God’s instruments of healing.
If you would like to join our Health Ministry Team or have ideas for Educational topics or activities please call Susan Cowan (724-699-2025) or the Church Office (724-981-2050).

“Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us
do good to all, especially to those who are
of the household of faith.”
