Faith Community Nursing
The purpose of the Sheboygan Evangelical Free Church health ministry is to extend the love of Jesus through a holistic view of health and wellness among our church community. This is done through compassion, nurturing, education, and encouraging others towards positive behaviors.
FCN Is Here for You
Navigating the world of medicine -- whether it be long-term care, a recent diagnosis, or preventative health -- can be overwhelming at times. FCN desires to come alongside you and help make that journey a bit easier. Among many other ways to help, we're here to:
- Make a phone call or visit to see how things are going, relaying updates to pastors and elders
- Maintain a medical equipment closet containing items that can be borrowed as needed
- Assist with Advanced Directives
FCN Is Here for our Church Family
Promoting health and wellness among our church family is an important aspect of FCN. Watch for special FCN-sponsored events throughout the year, such as:
- Blood pressure screenings
- Flu shot clinics
- First aid/CPR classes*
*Heartsaver and Basic Life Support (BLS) CPR classes are available for anyone interested in becoming certified. For more details, contact FCN Coordinator Kristie Ahlborg, certified CPR instructor.
Gracious words are like honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body. Proverbs 16:24
FCN distributes a newsletter twice a year entitled The Honeycomb, providing relevant medical-related information and encouragement to the church family.
Did you know you don't have to have a medical background to be involved with FCN? FCN also looks to encourage our church family by matching volunteers ready to assist others with non-medical needs, such as running an errand, light housework, or reading Scripture.
If you'd like to volunteer, please fill out the following form and Kristie Ahlborg, FCN coordinator, will contact you when match arises. Thank you!
