What is Parish Nursing?

Parish nursing is a unique blending of professional nursing and spiritual caregiving. By sharing in Christ’s healing love to persons of all ages, parish nurses promote a stewardship of health. Concern for the whole person makes parish nursing a wonderful complement to good, pastoral care and assists the body of Christ in outreach to their communities.

Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministry is an extension of Pastoral Care, a group of caring individuals who have undergone extensive training to minister one-on-one with individuals who have undergone some type of life transition that has impacted their lives and added stress. Some examples might be: loss of a spouse or family member, unemployment, health issues, divorce and other circumstances that happen in peoples’ lives. If you would benefit from meeting with a Stephen Minister or if you have an interest in serving the Lord by joining the Stephen Ministry team at Risen Savior, please contact Pastor Tom Harmon in the church office.
