Parish Health Ministry

Sherri Spicer RN, MSN, CNE, serves as our LICL parish nurse and is available to make home or hospital visits providing health consultation and spiritual care as needed. Another important role of the Parish nurse is to plan and implement a variety of health promotion programs for parents, teens, children, and older adult members.

It is important to understand that direct patient care is not part of the parish nurse role. A registered nurse must be must be employed by a licensed healthcare agency and following the orders of a health provider to provide direct care. Should our parish nurse determine such care is needed, she can facilitate obtaining orders for these services.

Sherri has an office space at Life in Christ (in room 4), and would be happy to meet with anyone that would like to discuss health concerns. Please contact the church office at (623) 773-1234.
