Did you know? The first hospital in the U.S., the Pennsylvania Hospital, was originally conceived in 1751 by Christian scientists, Dr.
Thomas Bond and Benjamin Franklin. It was built to be an institution “for the reception and cure of the sick poor...free of charge,” Dr. Bond states.
Worldwide, Churches are known for providing missionary services to visit, help, or heal the sick. Over half of the
hospital’s you find today are name after Saints or have Clergy and Chaplain staffed to meet spiritual needs for
holistic healing. The churches in the Lansing area each include ministries focused on science and technology, such as
nurse’s care, community computer labs, food & nutrition, chiropractic care, communications, or in-house tech and
engineering services. Here is a list of community groups that are impacting science and technology:
Graces List – An online emergency services directory
His Healing Hands Clinic – Medical care for the low-income population
Nami Lansing – Mental health care services
Shekinah International – Donating toward individual medical expenses
Friendship Baptist Church – Provides trips to medical appointments
