Introducing Cindy Luck, Parrish/Faith Community Nurse

Cindy Luck, Parrish Faith Community Nurse, and her daughterThis month I want to introduce Cindy Luck, our new Parrish Nurse. Cindy and her daughter Megan have been attending Bethel since May of 2013, and they recently made it “official” and joined our fellowship. Seven or eight months ago, I sat down with Cindy to get to know her a bit better. Cindy is married to Mike, her husband of 30 years, and they have two daughters, Kristen and Megan, who are both in college. Cindy enjoys spending time with her family and her cats and dogs.   She works for The Richmond Christian School, and her hobbies are spending time at the beach, crafts, cooking, reading, and concerts. I asked her what she was passionate about and if there is a particular ministry that is of particular interest to her. She said, “I’ve always wanted to be a Parrish Nurse.” I thought to myself, “Have I got a deal for you!”

That conversation planted the seeds that will bear fruit beginning this month. I’m excited to announce that Cindy’s ministry as our Parrish Nurse will begin on September 20th. She will see patients on the third   Sunday of every month. Cindy has recently completed a course in Parrish/Faith Community Nursing (PN/FCN) through Eastern Mennonite University. Let’s let Cindy tell you about the program in her own words:

“I first checked into the PN program years ago, and at that time it involved an out of town course that I couldn’t fit into my schedule. When the opportunity became available this year, I began my journey with FCN/PR nursing through Eastern Mennonite University. FCN offers a variety of services to the congregation and surrounding community.

Faith community nurses are licensed, registered nurses who practice holistic health for self, individuals and the community using nursing knowledge combined with spiritual care.

They function as either paid or unpaid members of the pastoral team in a variety of religious faiths, cultures, and countries. The focus of their work is on the intentional care of the spirit, assisting the members of the faith community to maintain and/or regain wholeness in body, mind, and spirit.

The PN/FCN program at Bethel will be a ministry of prayer, compassion, listening, and trying to guide an individual, family, and our community in living healthier lives. Bethel is blessed with having several nurses in our congregation that will join me in this new adventure and I want to thank them in advance for their dedication and willingness to help with the program.

Bethel’s PN/FCN program will begin on September 20th with blood pressure screenings. I’ll be available on the 3rd Sunday of each month beginning at 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. and again immediately following the worship service until noon. I’m excited about the program and if you have ideas or would like for us to have a class on a desired topic please let me know.

Bethel is part of the Christian Ambassador program in Chesterfield County which offers programs, social events, and community resources available throughout the County. We have several booklets available if you’d like to learn more about the county’s programs.”

I’m really excited about this new ministry. Please join me in thanking and praying for Cindy and for the other nurses who’ll make this program a vital part of Bethel’s on-going ministry to our church family and our community. The Lord is doing great things at Bethel and it’s because of people like Cindy Luck who are willing to develop and use the skills and passions that the Lord has given them. May God bless each of you and may God continue to bless Bethel Baptist Church.
