Parish Nurse Ministry

Parish Nurse Ministry - Contact: Janet Morton

At UBC, we believe Christian stewardship is not limited to how we handle our financial resources or our time; it also includes the care of our bodies. The scriptures tell us our bodies "are the temple of the Holy Spirit"; thus, we believe we have a mandate to have healthy bodies. The Parish Nurse Ministry takes a proactive role in educating our church family on diet, diseases, prevention and all aspects of a healthy lifestyle. The goal is to help everyone take care of their bodies so they can be of maximum service to the Lord. This ministry is led by our Parish Nurse, Janet Morton who also provides individual consults, visitations, establishes support groups and serves as liasions to other community health resources.
