Blood Pressure Screenings 9:00a-9:30a 2nd Sunday Each Month

Messiah’s Health Ministries team provide free blood pressure screenings on the 2nd Sunday every month in the yellow meeting room by the Café.

Ask for a Free File of Life Packet

A File of Life is a concise document that details medical conditions, allergies, medications, emergency contacts, etc. It is available in two sizes: a larger, magnetized one that goes on the refrigerator where paramedics are trained to look, and a smaller size for your pocket, purse, or wallet. Our Health Ministry team will be happy to assist those who need help filling out forms. Learn more about File for Life here.

How We Help

We do free blood pressure screening from 9:00-9:30a, on the 2nd Sunday of every month, in the Yellow Room. The Yellow Room is located along the south wall of the Café.

  • Grief Class – Each year, we offer a 6-week grief care class based on the book, Beyond the Broken Heart. Contact Lynette Thelen or Kathy Carter for more info on our next class.
  • Encourager Group – If you have suffered the death of a loved one and would like to meet with others who have experienced that as well, join us monthly for friendship, food and fun! We typically meet on the 3rd Thursday of the month to visit a local winery, try a new restaurant, take part in a service project, or enjoy other activities. Contact Jan Beck or Kathy Carter for more info
  • Collaboration –We work with Messiah’s Security Team and Ushers on universal precautions and first aid.
