Health & Welfare Ministries
The Health and Welfare Committee at Bethesda is very active. We provide monthly health information updates via a bulletin board in the entry of the Family Life Center. Free blood pressure screenings are offered after worship services on the 4th Sunday of each month. We sponsor activities that promote health and wellness such as classes on health topics, promoting use of the Bethesda Walking Track, and alerting the congregation to health programs that are available in the community. We sponsor 4 blood drives a year and observe Pink Sunday for breast cancer awareness each fall along with Donor Sabbath to promote organ and tissue donation in November. The committee also has a variety of health equipment available for loan (shower chairs, walkers, canes, bedside commodes, wheelchairs, etc.). For information on any of these activities or to get involved with the health ministries of the church, contact Peggy Dulaney at 859-8445.
