Tapping into spiritual richness
The Pacific Health Service launched a unique programme starting in Wainuiomata; where we have tapped into the spiritual richness of our people through the FAITH LED WELLNESS PROGRAMME.
The FAITH LED PROGRAMME is an opportunity for our Hutt Valley community; starting with our church families, to come together and help each other improve their health and wellbeing physically, spiritually, relationally and emotionally.
It is about EMPOWERING our community and churches individually and collectively to set goals, to develop creative solutions to be stronger by applying biblical principles in their health and wellbeing.
The FOUR key components of the FAITH LED WELLNESS programme are:
F A I T H
“I can do ALL THINGS through Christ who strengthens me”.
Taking the time to understand, that god has created us to live abundant lives.
Empowering change in making healthier choices spirit, soul and body; applying biblical principles to life’s journey.
F O O D
“So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God”.
Understanding good nutrition to fuel, heal and nourish our bodies.
Starting where you are at, making small changes towards an overall healthy eating lifestyle.
Treats should not be eaten everyday, only when you feel you should be rewarded.
F I T N E S S
3 JOHN 2
“Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul”.
Focusing on enjoying exercise and movement.
Cheering on and supporting each other, as everyone takes steps to lead a more active lifestyle.
F A M I L Y
“Two people are better than one. When two people work together, they get more done. If one person falls, the other person falls, the other person can reach out to help. But those who are alone when they fall have no one to help them”.
Sustaining changes together as a community, within each church family and individually.
We are better together. Working together as a family unit, as friends, as church families, as a wider community to help each other improve their health and wellbeing.
