Adventist Health Week was May 12-20. Our health message was and still is relevant – to our selves and to our community.
The theme or 2018, chosen by the SPD under the banner “Our Hands His Touch’, was Diabetes. Sermons, and a video promo were made available through https://www.facebook.com/SPDhealth/.
Did your church get involved? if not, keep an eye on the facebook page for upcoming dates and events, and plan something big for Health Week 2019!
You may recall the 10,000 toes Mission Offering at Big Camp. The Division has decided this will just be the beginning – the project will carry on over a number of years. Diabetes needs stamping out in the South Pacific, and they plan on leading that initiative. They need everyone to get behind the campaign. So take a look at the newly launched facebook page https://www.facebook.com/10000toes. If you have not already supported this project, please consider doing so at 10000toes.com.
Did You Know? As well as Greenvale’s program already mentioned, in the last month or so, five churches have been running Depression Recovery programs or CHIP. Well done, Casey, Cranbourne, Lighthouse Plant (Gateway) and Nunawading. You are offering over 45 people much needed help.
Casey also hosted a Health Expo at the newly finished Bunjil Place in Narre Warren, assisting over 220 people.
What can your church do to help share our much needed health message with a society where inactivity, indoors living and over indulgence is the norm?
