St. James Presbyterian Church

Health Ministry

The Health Ministry is a relatively new program at St. James born of the realization that health plays an increasingly important role in the life of the St. James' congregation.

The Parish Nurse program is designed to promote an understanding of the relationship between values, attitudes, lifestyles, faith and health. The Parish Nurse works closely with the Pastor to conduct home visits with parishioners and help assess their situations and needs.

Join us for Hatha Yoga classes where you will learn a set of physical exercises designed to align muscles and bones and restore a sense of physical and mental well being. The postures are also designed to open the many channels of the student's body and mind.

Tai Chi is a Chinese form of exercise. It is beneficial to both health and mind and is suitable for people of all ages. No special equipment is required and, as a result, it has received an enthusiastic reception all over the world. Tai Chi classes are available several times each week at St. James.
