Parish Nursing

Parish Nursing:  The Parish Nurse program is an outreach effort of FPC to meet the needs of the church body occasioned by spiritual, physical and mental illness.  It recognizes the connections between our physical bodies, our mental states and our spiritual selves.  The emphasis of the program is to provide information and education to our church members and our community, allowing informed and compassionate decision making by those being served.

Mike Russell is our Parish Nurse leader and volunteer.  Mike is a semi-retired instructor of Nursing at Tn Tech's extension; he also served as a charge nurse for many years.  Mike is interested in helping the church embrace the whole person.  Services include Health Care Screenings, Medicare Options Seminar, Basic CPR training, home visitation, and medical resource consulting.  If you need any of the Parish Nursing services please contact the pastor at
