Our Healthcare Ministry is a community and faith-based ministry offered to individuals of all ages who are associated with our congregation.
The ministry is part of a longterm partnership with BayCare's Faith Community Nursing Program through St. Anthony's Hospital.
The Healthcare Ministry team members include Faith Community Nurses (FCN) and Congregational Health Promoters (CHP) working as a team.
An FCN is a volunteer registered nurse licensed in Florida and has completed the FCN course sponsored through St. Anthony’s Hospital.
A CHP is a volunteer, non-licensed health worker who has completed St. Anthony’s training course and works with the FCNs in our ministry.
WHAT WE DO:
The Healthcare Ministry provides a monthly Blood Pressure Clinic the 2nd Sunday of each month in Room 10.
Look for the blood pressure sign in the hallway and come on in from 9:45-10:15 a.m. to get your free blood pressure check!
We also sponsor health education programming, guest speakers, and training events throughout the year.
The Healthcare Ministry is supported by and functions under church leadership and collaborates with the Faith Community Nurses at St. Anthony’s Hospital. Our mission is to identify, respond, and meet the health and spiritual needs of our congregation with a whole person non-invasive approach.
The Healthcare Ministry is to apply the whole person wellness with emphasis on health promotion, education, advocacy, and referrals to community healthcare resources.
The values of the Healthcare Ministry are Trust, Respect, Dignity, and Excellence of care with our responsibility to meet the healthcare and spiritual needs of our congregational members individually or, in a group setting.
