BLUEPRINT FOR WELLNESS SCREENING
Just a quick reminder for all Healthflex participants and spouses to register for the Blueprint for Wellness Screening. This screening involves a comprehensive blood test that is free to all Conference Health (active or retiree) Insurance participants and their spouses. Not only will this free screening give you and your doctor valuable information regarding your heart, kidney function, cholesterol, blood sugar, thyroid function, iron, and more, but will also allow you to earn $100 in HealthCash if you are enrolled in the Virgin Pulse program.
This information will be kept confidential. No one at your church, conference, employer, plan sponsor, HealthFlex, or General Board can access your personal lab results. Our independent lab, Quest Diagnostics, is bound by federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requirements to protect your privacy.
The deadline for the Blueprint for Wellness is July 31, 2016.

NEW DIGS MINISTRY NEEDS VOLUNTEERS
New Digs Ministry Inc., a 501(c)3 non-profit organization which works out of Mission Central in Mechanicsburg, Pa., has an urgent need for volunteers to help the ministry serve the growing needs of the community. New Digs Ministry's mission is to help people who have suffered some set backs to rebuild their lives. In the first six months of 2016, New Digs has provided over 1,200 adults and children with nearly $425,000 of household goods.
In order to continue offering such assistance, New Digs needs more folks to support its work in the warehouse. Of particular need are people to work in the furniture/bedding/appliance department; the positions involve moving items in and out of the warehouse using pallet jacks. The ministry also is in need of folks able to pick up donated furniture and other goods in the area and deliver them to Mission Central.
Potential volunteers are encouraged to contact New Digs Ministry by calling 717-620-9735 for further information and to volunteer.
