Health & Wellness
"Strengthening families and nurturing individuals in mind, body and soul through Christ."
Your Physical Health
There may be times when talking to a medical professional is helpful in navigating all the resources available from the medical community. If you are caring for an elderly parent or a young child...or yourself; it can sometimes be overwhelming to uncover and then research the various resources available in the medical field. Offering the liaison of a licensed registered nurse is one of the ways in which PeÃ±asquitos Lutheran Church reaches out to those who need information about medical resources when they don't know where to start. PLC's parishÂ also offers many innovative workshops and classes on current health issues; often times relating them to scripture in order to bring your good health closer to Christ.
Your Emotional and Spiritual Well-Being
Bringing your pain to Christ with the guidance of someone who understands can be beneficial in times of need. There may be times when talking to a professional counselor in a safe, Christ-centered environment can allow the emotional healing to begin and the spiritual connection to flourish. PeÃ±asquitos Lutheran Church offers the services of a licensed marriage and family therapist who helps individuals, families and couples invite Christ into their emotional lives while offering clinical professionalism.
