Health & Temperance MinistriesMs. Millicent Burke, Director.
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, it is indeed a great pleasure to be the health leader at Deerfield Beach Seventh-day Adventist Church. We believe a healthy lifestyle is a key to good health. Everything that enters our bodies should represent our Lord and Savior, who gave us healthy and clean foods to eat. As Adventist we are blessed with the wonderful health message, so let us continue to expound on this message, reminding our new and younger members to present their bodies as a living sacrifice to God. 1 Cor. 6:20 states, ” For we are bought with a price, therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which is God.”
Here at Deerfield, we have blood pressure checks every second Sabbath for member and visitors free of cost. We bring health awareness of the different illness that can occur in our bodies
every third Sabbath of the month during divine worship. God wants us to be healthy people when he comes and so we have to be mindful of this and do everything we can to take care of our bodies which is the temple of God.
