PC(USA) Wellness Connection

The PC(USA) Wellness Connection helps to identify Presbyterian congregations who are working to live out, sustain and promote whole health and wellness within their own life and within the wider community. Through this directory PHN can identify and lift up outstanding models of ministry. It also enables congregations to contact each other directly to learn about health ministries. Individual members of congregations can use the directory to learn about health ministries that may be able to assist with such issues as long-distance caregiving. The directory is all about being Presbyterian — a connectional church, living out our call to be a community of health, healing and wholeness.

  • Dear Carla, I, just now, noticed your comment from February but am wondering how your group went. We are fortunate enough to have a wonderful organization close to our church that provides this kind of support group as well as hospitals in the area that do the same. I would be happy to talk to you about this or anything else about parish nursing. I did not notice your name listed above. Please contact me at jfriend@pobox.com so we can set up a time to chat. by Joanie Friend on 08/22/2011 at 10:09 a.m.

  • I am a Parish Nurse, who along with my Assoc. Pastor, am starting a Cancer Support Group. We have quite a few women with breast cancer lately, and feel the need to offer this. We are limiting this first time to 4 weeks. Any one out there who has done this have any wisdom to offer us? Thanks much. by Carla VanDale on 02/10/2011 at 10:57 p.m.
