Healthy Connections - Repairing the Breach, Restoring the Gap:A Resource Guide of innovative UCC Church and UCC church-related ministries in Health, Health Care, Welfare and Human Service
We invite all UCC congregations and UCC church-related ministries to submit an entry for the Spring edition of the 2011 Resource Guide of innovative UCC church ministries related to health and human services.
The Resource Guide will highlight congregational approaches to addressing health, health welfare and human service issues faced by individuals. By identifying innovative ministries, programs and projects, building partnerships, sharing information, and replicating efforts, congregations will be able to forge stronger partnerships with other UCC congregations, ecumenical/interfaith groups, faith-based and community organizations, and health and human service agencies that will lead to improved and increased health and wholeness.
