Health Ministries at Calvary

At Calvary our Faith Community Nurse serves by promoting wholistic health and the prevention/minimizing impact, of illness. 

Although an FCN does not practice direct-care nursing, there are many other avenues of support offered.

The church is often the first place people come with their health needs. The FCN can enhance the ministry of the present staff and existing programs through their presence, attentive listening and prayer.   Because the nurse is already connected with health systems, the FCN can refer them to the appropriate sources and become their advocate.  As health care systems become increasingly complex, the FCN provides an outreach to the community as persons are often uncertain, unaware or uninformed.
