Parish Nurse

Patty Kilbreath, our parish nurse, is at the center of many of our nurture ministries. She offers counsel and educational programs to encourage physical and spiritual wellness, offers regular blood pressure screenings, and cooperates with our pastors to visit our members who are hospitalized or homebound.

We Care

We remind our homebound members of our love and care by sending cards, making phone calls, and by visiting them. Our We Care coordinators will arrange to collect greeting cards from our Sunday school classes. Individual members of our congregation volunteer to make calls or visits to some of our least mobile church family members.

Communion At Senior Care Facilities

On the first Monday of each month, one of our pastors and some volunteers from our congregation visit Broadmore and Brookdale senior living facilities to celebrate a brief service of Holy Communion. We meet in the common area at Broadmore at 11:15am and in the second floor activity room at Brookdale at 1:30pm.
