Guides for Talking to Your Congregation
Faith intersects with all areas of life, including health. Health goes beyond physical well-being; it involves body, mind and spirit. The Health Fund is dedicated to improving the health and wholeness of Kansans.
Healthy Congregations churches have asked us for more resources to discuss important topics such as mental wellness and maternal health. The Health Fund worked in partnership with Lisa Hancock, PhD, to develop a series of sermon guides that bring together scripture, theology, and health to help congregations connect their faith to health.
