CHIP In Your Church
Does your community know your church exists?
Do they know your church cares?
They do if you offer CHIP.
Why CHIP in the SDA Church?
"Residents of Okinawa, Sardinia, and Loma Linda, California, live longer, healthier lives than just about anyone else on Earth. What do they know that the rest of us don't?" (The Secrets of Longevity, Dan Buettner, National Geographic, November 2005)
National Geographic’s Study on Longevity (http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/ngm/0511/feature1/) points out the healthy lifestyle that Seventh-day Adventists follow. CHIP has a National Supply Agreement with the Seventh-day Adventist Church to help achieve their goal of bringing whole person health principles to their members and communities they serve.
