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.

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.
