Health & Wellness Ministry
The Health & Wellness Ministry is a new ministry, developed to bring education and awareness to the health of our congregation and community. We are partnering with Carle Faith Community Health to bring a monthly service to our community:
FAITH COMMUNITY NURSING
The purpose of faith community nursing is to nurture the human spirit through health education, spiritual support, and linking the needs of the whole person to resources within the congregation, community, and health care system. Carle Faith Community Health is excited to provide a faith community nurse to be onsite at the United Methodist Church in Tolono on the last Tuesday of each month, beginning August 31, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. No appointments are necessary so please feel free to stop by the Church and visit with the onsite faith community nurse.
The faith community nurse can:
- Take vital signs – blood pressure, pulse, and respirations
- Listen to lung sounds
- Provide health and wellness education
- Provide prayer
- Provide suggestions for questions to ask the Primary Care Physician or Specialists
- Provide suggestions of community resources to meet needs
