CTK’s Community Health Initiative General 


I have an ongoing collection of old eyeglasses in Room 116 for donation. Please drop then off and give the gift of sight to those in need. Go to for information on the charity. 


Community health and general health information can be found on the bulletin board across from the Nurses office. Also, check under “Connecting” on our website. I also have many informational pamphlets and flyers located in the Nurse’s office. Room 116. Any staff member can open the room, so you can peruse the information and take home, if you wish. 

CTK also has a Community Health Facebook page – Click on the link and like us if you would like to receive updates.

Health Cabinet Openings

We have openings to join the Health Cabinet. We meet monthly on Wednesdays at 7:30pm. If you have any interest in the Wellness Wheel (Spiritual, Social, Emotional, Physical, Financial, Vocational, Intellectual), this is a great committee to be on.   You do not have to be “Magazine Healthy” to join us. We are all struggling. 

Bloomington Health and Wellness Award
Thank you to Jean Butala for nominating the Health Cabinet and me for the Bloomington Health and Wellness Award. The award is to be presented to us on April 3rd at the City Council Meeting. Our congregation has so much love and the diligence to problem solve and bring forth all that we can to reach out to our community. We do not do it for awards and accolades, but it helps to know we are making a difference and people notice! Thank you to everyone who made and continues to make things happen and for supporting the Health Cabinets efforts. God bless you all.
