Mission: The ministry is established to educate, enlighten, and promote church and community cancer awareness and prevention through proactive education methods. The program is also designed for informational purposes, assistance for those with concerns, testimonials, and to provide church support for members and families who have been diagnosed with cancer and cancer survivors. The ministry has been established in the memory of the beloved Reverend John H. Parker, who died from cancer on February 12, 2012.
Purpose: Develop and implement education and support strategies. The volunteers are not “medical professionals” and are not affiliated with any medical entities; however, we will solicit medical professionals and other speakers to share information with the church members and community on the various types of cancers and related details. Personal information and medical histories will be kept in strict confidence. Our primary goal is to raise church and community awareness about cancer, treatment and prevention.
Monthly Meeting Date: every fourth Saturday from Noon – 2 p.m.
Major planned spiritual events for the spiritual growth and edification of the body of Christ at Central Baptist Church of Camp Springs, MD:
