Caring For Our Whole Selves
Caring for our whole selves and one another
We care for one another in many ways here at AACRC. Our Health Ministry is focussed on helping us to see the many dimensions of the renewal God calls us to, seeing the spiritual and physical selves as being integrally connected. Our Stephen Ministry is a place where those who are hurting can be paired with a Stephen minister committed to walking alongside them. When big life events happen, our Meals that Heal program provides food for the family in need. The Social Justice Committee helps us see wholeness as a community process and worldwide challenge.
Wholeness is all about tending to the many different aspects of our being. The Craft Group is a casual, creative space where women gather to craft and share life.
“We are a community founded on the principle that every person is created in God’s image and thereby endowed with inherently equal worth. In this context we commit to a covenant of fidelity to each other. We commit to fully live life together: a life of healing, love and care for one another. We are committed to being a healing community where all, members and nonmembers, can find healing for hurts, pains, addictions, and dysfunctions and move towards wholeness of body and soul.”
