Parish Nurse Health Care Ministries
Bethel, along with many other churches around the world, is returning to the old tradition of being involved in health care “to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.” (Luke 9:2)
Bethel’s parish nurse leads a health care ministry that works with individuals to incorporate optimal physical, psychological, social, emotional, and spiritual wellness into their lives. The parish nurse is a registered nurse who assists members of the congregation to become more aware of their health and to move toward a fuller sense of wholeness, holding the spiritual dimension at the center of personal wholeness.
The parish nurse’s role includes:
The parish nurse is intended as a strong supplement to pastoral care, medical care, community health nursing, and other social agencies. To do this, the nurse works in partnership with these services, to give further extended access and benefits. The parish nurse does not provide physical care, administer medications, draw blood, or do other invasive procedures. Another important note: Parish Nurses Provide their services for free!
Bethel’s parish nurse is Tina Goralczyk. She can be reached at the following:
