The Pee Dee Baptist Association Health Coalition, a joint effort of the Association along with Partners in Health and Wholeness, takes place April 3 at 7 p.m at St. Paul’s Missionary Baptist Church, 198 Gaines St., Aberdeen (Jackson Hamlet). Snacks will be provided, and the event is free and open to the public.
There are 32 churches within the Pee Dee Baptist Association, spanning several counties. President Mary Swann and Dean Yvonne McGraw have worked to form a health coalition to promote health as a faith issue. Currently two churches have become PHW-certified since the Health Coalition was formed in January 2012, Popular Springs Missionary Baptist Church and Bethlehem Missionary Baptist Church. Both are at the silver level.
