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. WMPC offers a variety of educational and support opportunities to encourage members and friends to care for their bodies. We also offer events for the good of the community.

Hayes Barton Pharmacy comes to give the flu shots on our campus. They bring the regular flu shot and the high dose flu shot for people age 65 and older. We typically give them one day in September and one day in October. You must be 14 years old or older to receive a flu shot at WMPC. Children under 14 must go to their pediatrician for a flu shot.

Mental Health & Wellness
This ministry seeks to promote mental wellness by building and sustaining a culture of love, help and hope through advocacy, support and education. As a part of that mission, we will strive to reduce the stigma of mental illness and addiction and to welcome and promote inclusion of all people in the life and leadership of this faith community.

Aging Well provides a forum where participants can approach some of the most pressing questions which arise as we age. While for many, aging may reflexively signify fears of loss or the unknown, here in community at White Memorial, there is space to discuss both our joys and our concerns, sorrows and unanticipated growth. Experts like psychologists, physicians, pastors and laypeople will share what they have learned about the aging process.
