Space Coast Volunteers in Medicine (SCVIM) Grand Opening
May 4, 2011

On April 25th, 2011, Space Coast Volunteers in Medicine (SCVIM) held their "ribbon cutting" ceremony and open house.  With over 175 people in attendance, and with many distinguished guests, this was truly a God-glorifying moment in our community.

Among the distinguished guests were Pam Gillespie from Comgressman Bill Posey's office, Dr. Richard Roberts, President of the American Academy of Family Physicians Foundation, Dr. Todd Sagin, Board Member from Volunteers in Medicine, Jim Barfield, President of Luke and Associates, Palm Bay Mayor John Mazziotti, and Dr. Heshmati of the Brevard County Health Department.

SCVIM is a local ministry that provides free health care for the working uninsured. This clinic is special because it houses very skilled Christian physicians, dentists, and dental hygieneists, nurses and others who volunteer their time and energy to help people in need, both physically and spiritually.

Covenant Presbyterian Church has joined other churches in providing both financial and volunteer help on a regular basis.  This is a great way for us to put "hands and feet" on the Gospel as we seek to make a difference in our community.
