Currency of Wellness *
When we speak of wellness, we are talking about our spiritual, physical, economic, and social wellness.
Wellness is important because when we are well, we can work to provide for the safety
and health of our families and our communities, focus on the needs of others
and support the ministries and facilities of our church.
At Grace in the Desert we are working to create the Wellness in many ways through our ministries.
- We create emotional, economic and social wellness for homeless families working with Family Promise.
- We work to promote wellness through Recovery ministries, Caring Hands and healing services.
- Wellness is an important part of our worship services
- We touch over 150 families annually with our Thanksgiving baskets
- We warm children’s hearts with our Angel tree gifts at Christmas.
- We support a local thrift store and food banks.
- We host outside activities including Alcoholics Anonymous, Gamblers Anonymous, and blood drives.
- We host groups that focus on senior health through fitness, balance, nutrition, and mental acuity.
- We work for social wellness through our participation in Nevadans for Common Good.
