Our Abundant Life Ministry focuses on the development of a health ministry, in co-operation with church members, church leaders, the community, local agencies, and hospitals. Ministry team members and the Parish Health Coordinator work together with God's guidance to facilitate seminars, classes, and health related events and activities. Together, they identify the health needs and concerns of the congregation, and plan and implement programs that promote wellness. Abundant Life focuses on a “whole person" approach to wellness and healing, believing that wholeness involves harmony among mind, body, and spirit.
Areas of health and wellness promotion and disease prevention include CPR classes, exercise classes, blood drives, BP screening, Divorce Care programming, Remembrance luncheons, referrals to community resources, and most importantly listening and loving the members, friends, and visitors of First Presbyterian Church.

Are you caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s or Dementia? Or do you want to help a friend who is dealing with Alzheimer’s? We invite you to join our Support Group and learn new ways to deal with some of the problems.
FPC Alzheimer's Support Group meets year-round. Come discuss your needs and/or better ways of caring or your loved one. This support group is designed for the earlier stages of Alzheimer's when your loved one is still living in your home. Alzheimer's Association of SouthCarolina is working closely with this group. Our leaders have trained and are well prepared. For additional information, contact Denise Ellis, RN, Parish Health Coordinator.
