On July 1st, members of our Act II Ministry held a “4th of July” barbecue for the residents of The Oaks assisted living facility. All the guests brought side dishes to accompany the BBQ feast. It was a great opportunity to interact, socialize and build community. Our Act II ministry was honored to serve as gracious hosts to our Winter Park neighbors!
The purpose of the Health and Wholeness Ministry is to promote the physical and spiritual health of our vibrant church family. Through information, resources, health screenings, classes, educational programs, and special events this ministry aims to inform our congregation and community. The activities and resources are relevant for all ages to promote wellness so we are able to answer God’s call to serve Him and lead an abundant life. Through health and wholeness, we become prepared to fulfill our purpose by worshiping, praying, reading scripture, studying the Word in community, and serving others.
Some of the activities and programs this past year have included:
- A workshop on clean cooking with the Insta-pot.
- Regularly offered presentations by health experts about topics frequently faced by adults of all ages.
- A Wednesday night series on the Daniel Plan, where participants committed to becoming healthier through food, fitness, faith, focus and healthy living activities with friends.
- Neighbor to Neighbor, which pairs members of our vibrant family to connect before and after a storm.
- Soul Collage Workshop, where each participant created collages using photos that uniquely defined each individual. The soul collage experience deepened each person’s understanding of their dreams and inner soul.
It was 3 years ago that the current CFCD team came together. It was inspired by Pastor David’s vision of a church that thrives when people get involved. The goal is to create a reproducible pathway to discipleship. This photo was taken at the final meeting for the pilot group, hosted by Rev. Jayne Rideout. Over the next several months, the team will be analyzing the data from the pilot and collaborating with the leaders to create the people, process and place components of the Center for Creative Discipleship.
