Spirit of Giving
Celebrating the work of Faith Community Nurses and Health Ministers
Saturday, October 19, 2019
11 am - 1 pm
First Congregational Church, 2401 Cornwall Ave, Bellingham, WA 98225
Each year, faith community nurses (FCNs) and health ministers (HMs) serve their congregations at no cost to clients. In our four-county region, 106 FCNs and HMs are currently serving in 45 congregations representing a variety of faiths. In 2018, they provided more than 8,262 hours of service, valued at $289,205.
Health Ministries Network supports this work by seeding new health ministry, facilitating an annual health ministry course and providing monthly educational opportunities.
Please join us as we celebrate their service and raise funds to ensure the future of health ministry in our community. We believe an investment in our faith community nurses and health ministers is an investment in our community’s health.
