Health and Wellness Ministry

 
Mission Statement: The mission of LHBC’s Health and Wellness Ministry is to equip all to attain empowerment through individual achievement of optimal whole health (spiritual, physical, mental, environmental, etc.).
 
Vision Statement: We are devoted to the empowerment and encouragement of optimal health guided by Biblical principles. We provide outreach through monthly blood pressure clinics where monitoring and education is provided. We also monitor health and safety guidelines & resources that affect our congregation and community, and provide guidance and disseminate information as appropriate therein.
 
Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.

CORONA VIRUS UPDATES
 
 
 
At this time our church building is still closed to all in person meetings and services.  LHBC/EV will continue to stream our Sunday morning services online. While we all have the desire to worship in person with our church family, we also want to be cautious and not rush into decisions that could pose a danger to our church family. We do want you to know about several community resources that will assist you during this trying time. As always, if you are in need of prayer or assistance please do not hesitate to contact us.
