Five Wishes

Here at First Presbyterian Church we have a vital Health Ministry.  Health Ministry is an intentional ministry of caring that promotes health and wholeness as part of the mission and ministry of this congregation and the community it serves.  Health is harmony with self, others, the environment and God.

An Annual Health Fair has been provided to the members and to the community as a whole partnering with over 13 agencies to share their contributions to the health and wellness field.  Approximately 100 individuals, many from the community, attended our 2017 event.

This ministry has partnered with the Boynton Beach Community Caring Center, Genesis Health Care, Bethesda Hospital, Area Agency on Aging, Palm Beach County Substance Awareness Coalition, and CROS Ministries to provide monthly activities that promote health and wellness such as blood pressure and weight screenings, fitness classes, lunch and learn series, recreational activities, and speaker presentations that are relevant to health, prevention, and awareness.

We are grateful to have received a grant through the Presbytery of Tropical Florida, Coral Gables Grant Fund, to help us bring this ministry to “life abundantly” for  our congregation and community.
