“Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.”
1 Corinthians 6: 19-20
Finding God and discovering Christ is the first step in rejuvenating your religious health. Staying healthy and active through Him requires important tools, including the Bible, prayer, and worship. There are also similar tools that can become relevant to maintain physical health, but not all of them are as easily accessible as faith. At Zion Lutheran Church of Clear Lake, there is a strong focus on health and wholeness of the body, mind and spirit and one program is working to help fill what prayers cannot.
There is a focus on community and giving back at Zion Lutheran, from special trips to donation drives to help those in the community and beyond. One effort in particular, led by Health Ministries Director Abigail Schumacher, is working to help those facing health issues both in the church community and beyond.
Zion Lutheran’s Health Ministry provides tips, tricks and knowledgeable advice on how to keep your body and mind healthy and happy. Church members can receive valuable information through the church’s e-newsletter, Z-Mail, or by way of the church’s library.
The church also offers up special workout sessions throughout the week, where church members can meet up to exercise, get fit and share wellness tips.
“If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him. For God’s temple is holy, and you are that temple.”
1 Corinthians 3:17
One special service that sets Zion Lutheran apart from other churches in the community is a unique lending service. Zion Church offers a medical equipment lending service to church members and the community. With help from community members and other donations, Zion has acquired a handful of tools that help those in need. Locals can rent canes, walkers, crutches, shower benches, and manual lifts at no cost to them. The church makes these items available to those suffering temporary medical issues, ensuring that those in need are able to take care of themselves.
A balance of health in the body, mind and spirit is the closest way to Christ and the gates of Heaven.
