Miracle Ministries Recognized For Work With Health Needs t The Miracle Ministries church in Hogansville recently received recognition at the Aligning Faith and Health cent ference. The conference, sponsored by District IV Health serv- ices, was held in Barnesville May 6th and 7th and was titled "A Movement Towards Excellence". Prior to the conference, participants were asked to nom- inate faith based organizations who have made significant strides in the development of faith and health collaborations in West Central Georgia. Wanda Lowe, RN nominated the Miracle Ministries church because of the unique interventions they have made towards the health of their congregation. Some of the activities that lead to the nomination include: sponsoring a community health fair, weight monitoring, planned walking time together, physician lecture on sexual- ly transmitted diseases, and working to increase the nutri- tional value of foods that are served at church functions. But the activity that caught Wanda's attention the most was when Pastor Chris Evans had the congregation dress comfortably for church during the month of August so they could do some exercise during the worship service! In making the nomination for the award, Wanda summed up their accomplishments by saying, "I believe this type of activity in the church will make an impact on others, enrich- ing the community and therefore make changes in our soci- ety. Congratulations, Miracle Ministries!
