    Health Ministry team believes

    Prayer, Praise & Worship:

    Prayer connects us to speaking directly to God for your daily needs

    Praise is the time we spend in private away from everyone just giving God thanks

    Worship is a way of life. It is the way we do what God has called us to do. The time we fellowship with other believers. Caring for our temple is included as worship.

    Trust God for ideas. Ask Him. The work is all divine and it’s all about HIM! Not us.

    Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. 3 John 1:2
