Health Ministry 

The Health Ministry Team is made up of professionals and non-professionals from our congregation who meet with the Faith Community Nurse to plan the Health Ministry programs of our church. They share their gifts and experience to help with and oversee the presentation of educational programs, CPR/AED training, visitation through Caregivers, PAWS ministry, SHAWL ministry, educational materials and referral assistance to community services, and other health related support programs for the congregation. They meet on Saturday mornings every 6 – 8 weeks. We welcome your input and ideas.

Faith Community Nurse Ministry

The Faith Community Nurse is a registered nurse committed to the healing ministry of the church. The relationship of mind, body and spirit we gain by sharing in our community of faith adds to the dimension of our wholeness. Through education, counseling, visiting, advocacy and prayer, the Faith Community Nurse seeks to improve the health, enrich lives and make us more connected to one another and to the Spirit of Christ.
