Parish Nursing Ministry
Parish Nursing is the ministry of caring for the whole person - mind, body and spirit - to integrate our faith and our health. In recent years medical research has found that a strong faith andprayer life are central to staying well and to healing when disease comes to us. Christian churches were the leaders in health care not so many years ago. The parish nurse does not replace the pastor but works with the pastor to promote healing and bring comfort to those in need. The parish nurse provides health education, resources and screenings. Jesus asks us to care for one another and here at Park we have seen that caring increase since the onset of this ministry.
"Peace, peace for those far and near," says the Lord, "and I will heal them." Isaiah 57:19
