Our Faith Community Nurse Ministry integrates the practice of faith with the practice of Blood_pressure_measurement_(2009)nursing.  This ministry assists congregational members with reaching their optimal level of whole person health.  Our  Community Nurse acts as an advisor; he or she does not practice traditional nursing functions such as drawing blood, providing medical treatments or administering  flu shots or medication.  The Faith Community Nurse Ministry offers a variety of support services:

  • Visits members identified via notification through our church office
  • Provides counseling on related health issues
  • Offers classes on how to maintain good health
  • Arranges for health screenings
  • Assists in developing support groups
  • Trains and coordinates volunteers


Blood pressure screening is offered the 3rd Sunday of each month in between worship services. From May through October, screening is done between the 9:30 and 11 a.m. services; and from November through April, it is after the 8 a.m. service and the 9:30 a.m. service.

If you are an RN, LPN, CNA, Paramedic/EMS and would like to help with the monthly blood pressure screening, please contact Eileen Savell, Faith Community Nurse at 386-689-4431. There is no commitment to help each month – any amount of time would be appreciated!
