Health Ministry

  • Church Council encourages everyone who can be vaccinated to please get vaccinated for the health of our world community (love of neighbors).

  • The First Congregational United Church of Christ of Bellingham is pleased to offer a Health and Healing Scholarship in honor of Debra Kay Pehrson, who served this community as a dedicated nurse. The $2,500 yearly scholarship was established by her mother, Alvie Pehrson, to support individuals in our congregation who have chosen to pursue a career in healthcare.

  • Being Mortal II will happen on Friday January 25 with lunch from 11:00 am-1:00 pm. Our Faith Community Nurses and Health Minister will facilitate this meeting to support any who wish help with filling out the Peace Health Advance Directive called Honoring Choices.

  • Our church is now officially a provider of Hospital to Home Transitional Care with the Health Ministries Network (HMN). Our Faith Community Nurses (FCN) have been offering this transitional care for some years, but we are now signed up as the first faith community provider through the HMN.
