Our parish nurse ministry is a unique way we help our congregation and our community with health and wellness questions and needs. Our Parish Nurse program promotes and supports physical, emotional and spiritual wellness by providing education, counseling, advocacy and comfort. Services are available free of charge to church members and the community
We provide education, counseling, assessments and health-care support for all ages- newborn to end of life. Our church maintains a medical supply lending closet that provides items such as wheelchairs, walkers, bandages and other health care items free of charge to anyone in need. Other services include annual flu shot clinic, monthly blood pressure checks, on going bereavement support groups, help with transportation to and from medical appointments, support during surgery, hospitalizations and emergency room visits. We also provide prenatal, labor and delivery and breast feeding support as well as working with the Congregational Preschool to maintain their Health Department reporting, vaccine counseling and preschool wellness.
Appointments may be made by calling the church office. I look forward to supporting your health and wholeness!

COVID-19 INFORMATION – FROM YOUR PARISH NURSE
COVID vaccine information: We are still waiting for our local health department to get their vaccine shipment that will be used at our church. I will let everyone know immediately as soon as I am notified. I highly suggest getting on the Spectrum Health list for an appointment there while we wait for the Health Department supply. The number to call if you or someone you know does not have computer access is 1- 833-755-0696. A Spectrum operator will take all your information on the phone. Please share this number with anyone who may need it! If you have any questions please call Patrice at 616-894-7288.
Spectrum Health, Mercy Health and the Kent County Health Department have joined to do a large COVID vaccine clinic at DeVos Hall in downtown Grand Rapids. To request an appointment please go to the Spectrum Health website ( spectrumhealth.org) or call 833-755-0696 if you do not have computer access. If you have already signed up with Spectrum Health you are all set and should hear from them soon. If you know someone without computer access please share this information with them. We are still planning on having a clinic here at the church when our Health Department gets more vaccines, but I strongly suggest you register at the Spectrum site now to ensure you get a vaccine as soon as possible. If you have any questions please call Patrice at 616-894-7288.
