Allegany County Health Ministries Network
Health is viewed as a gift and a way of relational living in community. These caring ministries are an essential part of congregational life. They incorporate the values, beliefs, and practices of a faith community as components in motivating persons toward health and wholeness. Health promotion and faith beliefs are integrated into the normal cycles of life – birth, wellness, development, maturation, illness, and death – to celebrate life; to enhance coping, wholeness, and a sense of peace; and improve community well-being.
