Parish Nurses are involved in improving the health and welfare of the congregation and community. Some of the things that we do are:
Anyone with a health background is welcome - nurses, physical, occupational or speech therapists, social workers, etc. Time commitment is anywhere from an hour a month to as much as they wish. I spend about 10-15 hours per month between coordination and home visits. We work closely with the pastor, the Shepherding Committee and Meal Committee (Marg Anderson). We currently have only a few active members so we really could use more members so we can serve Bethel more completely.
