Classes, Workshops and Support Groups
On Monday, March 4, 2013, Health Ministries and Presbyterian Women co-sponsored an American Red Cross Blood Drive in Pickard Hall. Fifty generous donors volunteered to give blood, and 42 pints of life-saving blood were collected. Our next blood drive will be in October 2013.
Flu Shot Clinic
Each autumn Health Ministries sponsors a one-day flu shot clinic for the convenience of our members. The 2012 clinic was held on Wednesday, November 7th.The flu shot, the nasal spray mist flu vaccine (FluMist®), and the DTaP shot that provides protection against tetanus and pertussis were administered at our 2012 clinic.
Health Ministries sponsors CPR classes a couple of times a year.
CPR for Officers and Staff
We ask that as many officers of WMPC go through CPR/AED training as possible. We now have three automated Electronic Defibrillators( AED) on our campus and know that in emergencies being able to use them can SAVE LIVES! Please be a part of learning how to be trained for emergencies during activities at our church.
White Memorial offers Weight Watchers because we are all called to be good stewards of the bodies and the lives we have been given. Since October 2011, WMPC has offered a Weight Watchers group and everyone is welcome to attend one meeting at no charge.
