This group of health professionals from our church promotes healthy physical and emotional lifestyles for our congregation through education, blood pressure screenings and other health checks. They have been instrumental in having a defibrillator installed at FUMC for emergencies and work with the Red Cross to have the Bloodmobile visit our parking lot on a regular basis. They also initiate projects such as Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets to benefit shut-ins and others, and have plans to help visit shut-ins and others in our church family who might be in need of visits. The mission is to join faith communities in their efforts to promote the whole person health of their members through education and improved access to health and preventive care. Our Faith-Based Nurses at FUMC use their nursing expertise to utilize community resources and assist the congregation in accessing these resources.
