Health ministry at North Shore Congregational Church consists of a Parish Nurse, and seven great volunteer team members. They meet monthly to plan and keep abreast of the many wellness needs of the congregation.
The purpose is to encourage all members to be well of body, mind, and spirit, for we know when one part of us is not well, the other parts suffer.
