- To provide health education information to members of our church body through our present printed media The Beulah Newsletter. Each year HRM members will address health issues based upon the National Monthly Health Observances that have the greatest impact among our people by submitting a monthly article to the Beulah Newsletter. Additionally the Health Resource Ministry utilizes the present freestanding receptacles to place appropriate pamphlets, brochures and flyers to keep members informed about current health issues and activities.
- To increase health awareness within our church body through conferences, special events and organizations already in existence. Since activities such as health fairs, seminars etc. as stand alone activities have not been well attended in general previously, the Health Resource Ministry takes a more inclusive approach. Members of the Health Resource Ministry are assigned to work with conferences, special events, or organizations to identify health needs and coordinate activities within those groups to meet the health needs of the people. Some of the groups we have worked with to achieve this goal are the Family Life Conference, Counseling Ministry through the church counselor, Youth Department, Golden Eagles, Womens Ministry and Cancer Support Group.
