Faith Community Nursing

We are so excited to begin programs and opportunities applying the expertise, skill and compassion of our Faith Community Nurses here at FPC! Together we’d like to wonder; what does it mean to care about the health of the whole person and our whole community? How can my family and I utilize the resources and knowledge of the Faith Community Nurses?


We would love some input from you on the ways our nurses can serve the wider FPC community.

Please fill out this quick survey – we would like to hear from as many of you as possible!

What is Faith Community Nursing?

The mission of Faith Community Nursing is the intentional integration of the practice of faith and nursing promoting wellness of body, mind and spirit for individuals of all ages.


Faith Community Nurses at FPC desire to work alongside our pastoral staff and deacons to address needs of our church body, meeting with people both 1:1 and in group settings. Our desire is to provide education, health advocacy and act as a liaison to agencies and support services.

Your Faith Community Nurses,

Glenda McLachlan RN
Julie Friesen RN
Mary Lynn Palmer RN

Upcoming Opportunities:
  • Caregiver’s Support Group
  • Screening of ‘Being Mortal’ special, followed by panel discussion around end of life issues and how we walk with people well.
