I’m getting pretty pumped about this. We are helping to facilitate the launch of a new faith based (free) medical clinic here in Moore soon! Will you consider being part of our prayer and volunteer team?
The Moore Faith Medical Clinic will be located at the new Serve Moore Community Renewal HQ. (224 S. Chestnut Avenue, Moore) We don’t have a launch date yet but we’re praying toward early May.
A number of medical professionals who are members of several Moore area churches are already involved. Will you pray for us as we make preparations to kick this off? When we launch, we anticipate a part-time schedule along the lines of … Thursday evenings from 5:30-8:30 PM or Saturday mornings. Something like that. Later, we hope for more open hours.
OUR VISION – Our vision is to bring glory to God while ministering to the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of those without adequate resources in our community. Our desire is to share the love of Christ in a holistic and tangible way through faith-based medical care. We want to love and serve the people of our community while recognizing the God-given dignity of each human life.
THE NEED IN OUR COMMUNITY – The Health Alliance statistics for our area show that at least 25% of the population—mostly “working poor,” have no access to health insurance or adequate medical care. In addition we have received “anecdotal evidence” from feedback we have received from the Cleveland County Clinic and the Norman Regional / Moore Medical Center E.R. that indicate the numbers are even higher. We believe that any need or problem in our community can and should be addressed by the church and the message of Gospel. We believe this is a huge opportunity for the Body to be the hands and love of Christ in our community.
OUR NEED FOR VOLUNTEERS – There will be a need for volunteers of all backgrounds to operate the clinic. This would include doctors, nurses, pharmacists and techs, clerical, prayer teams, reception, greeters, exam room cleaners, pastors, chaplains, etc. Our goal is to have a “deep enough bench” so that when we launch, we can have multiple teams to rotate on a regular (part-time) schedule. Later, we hope to have dentists, dental assistants, optometrists, health educators, diabetes care, dietitians and folks who could meet with diabetes patients to give encouragement, case workers who have background in social work for more complicated cases, referrals for counseling, help with addictions, etc.
Please join us in praying that God would lead us, give us wisdom and His provision for His glory in our city. Our desire is that we would see people through His eyes and that His Name might be more famous through this ministry in our city.
