Welcome to the EmPowered To Serve Community.
This online community is a place for diverse individuals and organizations to unite in order to create a sustainable culture of health within our communities. We can take steps individually to improve our own health and by working together we can improve community environments to make healthy living an accessible, affordable option for everyone. Together we can make a positive, lasting impact by creating a legacy to thrive, not just survive. We are empowered to serve. Serve our health, serve our faith and serve our community.

"I wish above all things that you would be in health…but a healthy lifestyle must be more than a wish. We must take steps to ensure that we are present for our future. The quality of our health so often depends on the quality of our choices. At Perfecting Church we are choosing to be a Healthy, Holy, and Happy faith community." – Pastor Marvin Winans, Perfecting Church, Detroit, MI
