December 2016: This issue of the Parish Nurse Newsletter highlights ways parish nurses have reached out and served a particular population in their midst.
The population typically served by a parish nurse includes the members of a congregation or the residents living in a specific community. Within this larger population, though, smaller populations can be identified so their needs can be appropriately addressed by parish nurses.
The newsletter also includes other important information:
- Helpful tips for supporting brothers and sisters in Christ who are facing the first Christmas without a loved one;
- Ideas that LCMS congregations can use to make a difference in the lives of military families;
- A list of the district parish nurse representatives; and
- Educational opportunities and resources for parish nurses serving across the globe.
The Lord bless your ministry,
Dr. Marcia (Marcy) Schnorr and Karen Hardecopf
Parish Nursing Coordinators, LCMS Health Ministry
P.S. LCMS Health Ministry provides a series of video presentations for parish nurses and others serving in congregational health ministry. Some presentations include specific theology applicable to parish nurses, and some are more specific to health-related topics. Visit lcms.org/health/parishnursing to view past videos.
