Parish Nurse Ministries

First Congregational Church’s parish nurse, Deb Goldfeder, works with members and their families to promote health in body, mind and spirit. She not only checks our blood pressures but she also provides health teaching, makes referrals to agencies in the community, visits people in hospitals, homes or in nursing homes to provide pastoral care as well. Deb and the Tuesday Saints Women’s Fellowship obtained a defibrillator (AED) for the church. Deb arranged Heartsaver/AED training for the staff and interested church members.

Deb has a special interest in mission: she lived and worked with the Moru tribe in Southern Sudan from December of 2005 to June of 2006. When an opportunity for a return came up to assess the hospital, First Church supported her. This picture of Deb and her friend’s son, Most, was taken during December 2008.
