On another topic, Faith Community Nursing (FCN), in partnership with Pastoral Care and our Minister, as well as others, is in the process of planning what we can/will bring to you, our Community, over the next 12 months or so.
We have sponsored presentations on exercise and nutrition, among other things, and there is more we would like to do. We had our Survey, and we want to find out what, in particular, you would like to see happen next in this regard. There will be opportunities for your input…. Watch for them!
