In 2008 Rev. Dr. Jean Hawxhurst and Parish Nurse Peggy Bennett presented a vision to Fourth Avenue UMC and the Open Door Ministry: to serve those beyond the church building by offering the services of a parish nurse and a health clinic. That resulted in the Healthy-Living Clinic, a medical assessment and advocacy program, that has been in operation since October of that year. Nurse Bennett was unsure of how her efforts would be viewed, "I didn't think they would accept me, but they did". Nurse Bennett along with many others poured her heart and soul into making the clinic a success.
