Workshops and Support Groups

Convinced that our bodies are our gift from God, the ways we care for our physical selves becomes as important as the ways we care for our spiritual selves. White Memorial's Health Ministries team sponsors a variety of education and support opportunities to encourage members and friends to care for their bodies.

Blood Drive
On Monday, March 17, 2014, Health Ministries and Presbyterian Women are co-sponsoring an American Red Cross Blood Drive. Donation hours are 2:00 - 6:15 p.m. Appointments are required and may be made by contacting Jean Williams. Child care is available while you donate.

Flu Shot Clinic
Each autumn Health Ministries sponsors a flu shot clinic for the convenience of our members. The flu shot, the nasal spray mist flu vaccine (FluMist®), and the dTap shot that provides protection against tetanus and pertussis was administered on two dates in October 2013.

Plan to get next year's flu shot at WMPC in Fall 2014! Certification
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. Watchers
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. Everyone is welcome to attend one meeting at no charge.

New Year’s Resolution: Weight Loss
If one of your 2014 New Year’s resolutions is to lose weight, come join the Weight Watchers group that meets in W400 on Thursdays from 6:30-7:00 p.m. with weigh-in starting at 6:00 p.m. Our first meeting of the new year will be on Thursday, January 2. Information on cost will be available at the meeting.

Why Do You Want to Lose? – Weight Watchers Weekly November 24-30, 2013

Maybe you want to lose weight because you are tired of struggling up the stairs, or are worried about your heart health, or simply do not like what you see in the mirror. On a weight-loss journey, you will find that other reasons pop up as you recognize just what losing weight can do for you.

Why ask why? Because the more reasons you have, the more points of strength you’ll have to lean on, the firmer your resolve, and the more tangible your weight goal. A simpler way to put it: the more “want power” you have, the more willpower you have.

Joining a Weight Watcher “at-work” group such this one gives you the opportunity to give support and get support from others, including people you probably already know. The meeting is open to everyone, not just WMPC members.

Let’s keep Weight Watchers meeting here at WMPC!
Holding Weight Watchers at WMPC requires a minimum number of members, and right now, we’re in danger of losing our meeting. We need to bring new members in to help keep our meeting going.

Don’t wait...anyone can join. Meetings are held at White Memorial Presbyterian Church every Thursday in W400 from 6:30 - 7:00 p.m. with weigh-in starting at 6:00 p.m. Contact 
Lisa Hebacker for more information, or if the current time or day does not fit your schedule and you would like us consider another time.
