The healing ministry of the Aurora United Methodist Church is called The Parish Nurse Service. Our Parish Nurse is Catherine Rahrs, RN, to contact her call 402-694-6471 ext. 26. The statement of purpose for this ministry: "From birth till death...making disciples for Jesus Christ through mind, body and spirit."
Here at AUMC health and wellness issues are combined with Biblical principles and are offered to anyone without charge. Many users of the service do contribute via donations, but lack of monitory resources does not limit access to our care. The parish nurse offers great informational resources to families of first born or adopted infants and devotionals are available for newlyweds. Home visits and public speaking on numerous health topics can also be arranged through Parish Nursing. Foot care is the most used service here at AUMC. Also blood pressure screening is done on the 3rd Sunday of the month after our worship service. Diabetes screening is offered quarterly and during office hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting at 9:00 a.m.
The Parish Nurse also makes contact with members having health concerns, wellness questions, new babies, crisis, death or illness.
