  • Parish Nurses - medically trained parishioners who provide monthly blood pressure screenings and health assessments (Ministry Leader: Kathy Moore)
  • Health Care Ministry - volunteers who visit with and distribute Eucharist to the homebound and those in assisted living and nursing home facilities (Ministry Leader: Bobbie Speace)
  • Healing Prayer Team - trained parishioners who sit in prayer with parishioners who have specific prayer needs (Ministry Leader: Laura Ulmer)
  • Samaritan Ministry – provides assistance to parishioners in time of critical need, such as unemployment, housing foreclosure, homelessness, or other emergencies (Ministry Leader: Greg Stevens)
