BeWell -Come Together
Be Well-Come Together brings people together on the west bank of the Mississippi River of Jefferson and Orleans parishes, so that we can support each other's physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Everyone is welcome! We lift each other's spirits; join together for meditation, exercise, gardening, and support groups; reflect on scripture and questions of life and faith; pray together; love and respect each other; and build community and friendships across our varied backgrounds and faith perspectives. All of the following take place at 2525 Apollo Ave., Harvey, LA (Faith Presbyterian Church provides our meeting space).
