Health and Temperance

The Health and Temperance Ministry of the Lighthouse S.D.A. Church welcomes everyone to this site. Our goal is to reach out to the community with the programs that can change lives.

We believe that the Seventh-day Adventist Health and Temperance message must be taught not only to our members but to people in the community. The Adventist lifestyle protects its adherents from several diseases which can be prevented by dietary changes, simple remedies, health screening programs, health education, substance abuse prevention programs, and physical fitness programs.

This year we will focus on the following:
  • Health screening programs
  • Vegetarian cooking classes
  • Bread baking
  • Exercise
  • Prevention of Heart Disease
  • Cancer Prevention
  • Stress control
  • Prevention of sexually Transmitted Diseases
We are thankful that God has given us this health message to prepare us for our heavenly home. God's wish for us is good health. He states, "Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health even as thy soul prospereth." (3 John 21)

I trust that we will pledge to maintain our bodies in according to God's will, and to share the knowledge we have with others.

"The Creator of man has arranged the living machinery of our bodies. Every function is wonderfully and wisely made. And God pledged himself to keep this human machinery in healthful action if the human agent will obey His laws and co-operate with God." (White, E.G. Counsels on Diets And Foods, p.17)

May God bless us all.

Health and Temperance Director, Shirley Archer
