Serving in Christ's Love and Sharing the Good News

Health Ministries

Mission of Trinity's Health Ministries:

To serve God's people in Christ's name by ministering holistically to physical, emotional, and spiritual wellness.

This mission is rooted in Christ who spoke about the healing of body, mind, and spirit. To accomplish this ministry, Trinity has a parish nurse, Vicki Dueringer, R.N., and an active health ministries committee comprised of physicians, nurses, social workers, and others who are passionate about our mission.

The parish nurse works in collaboration with the pastors, committee sponsors, community services, and resources to enhance health care delivery for the congregation. The parish nurse works with the congregation by:

  • Visiting members wherever they are (homes, hospitals, or nursing homes)
  • Counseling members on health concerns
  • Assisting in obtaining health resources
  • Helping to understand the relationship of body, mind, and spirit
  • Assisting in lifestyle changes
  • Organizing, coordinating, promoting and evaluating health education programs and screenings
  • Coordinating congregational volunteers

Contact Parish Nurse Vicki Dueringer at vickid@trinity-ec.org or 715.832.6601.

 

When You Find Yourself in the Hospital

The Trinity pastors share responsibility for making regular trips to area hospitals to visit Trinity members during in-patient stays. However, they can only get information of your hospitalization when your Trinity membership is coded in your hospital file or when you or a friend inform us directly. You can be assured of a visit when you phone the church office or email trinity@trinity-ec.org in advance or during a hospitalization.
