Health Ministries

Health Ministries at Vienna is responsible for health education and promotion in our church and local community. The most important objective of Health Ministries is to help people reach their full potential mentally, spiritually and physically. To do this, health principles must be learned and practiced regularly. The principles of health that we embrace are nutrition, physical activity, water, appropriate sunshine, temperance, fresh air, adequate rest & sleep, and trust in God. 

Each autumn at Vienna, we hold a health fair. Free and open to the public, a variety of health screenings and information booths are available. Each month a health newsletter is available by the doors of the church. Each quarter a special health talk is the opening part of sabbath school class in the sanctuary.

Dr. Hans Diehl, Founder of the CHIP Program to Present Health Seminars Nov 3, 2013.

Dr. Hans Diehl developed the CHIP program as a community-based lifestyle intervention program to arrest and reverse many common diseases after seeing incredible results while directing the research and education efforts at the famous Pritikin Longevity Center. There he saw first hand what can happen when people make better lifestyle choices.

Inspired to make lifestyle education easily accessible and affordable, Dr. Diehl created the CHIP program. Today, more than 50,000 participants are healthier and happier thanks to CHIP. Dr. Diehl is still presenting the principles of lifestyle change in a humorous, compelling and inspiring manner.
