The UCC Wellness Ministries (formerly the Faith Community Nurse Network) aims to promote health ministries in congregations and communities.
Full implementation of the resolution “Reclaiming the Church’s Ministry of Health and Healing” adopted by the 21st General Synod of the UCC (1997-Columbus).
To inform and engage UCC congregations in ministries of health and healing for the benefit of each congregation and the community it serves.
Goals of the UCC Wellness Ministries
- Serve as a spiritual care resource to the leadership of the UCC by promoting and supporting activities of health, healing, and wholeness within our congregations and the communities served.
- Make available to all UCC churches information and opportunities for programming so that the UCC community we serve may better access the health care services they need.
- Inform and engage congregations, associations, and conferences in facilitating individualized and distinct responses to the Resolution.
- Collaborate with the other health-focused groups of the UCC National Office to create a synergic effort of information sharing for the benefit of all.
Open and Affirming Covenant
UCC Wellness Ministry teams and Faith Community Nurses, taking scripture as our guide, understand that all individuals are created in God’s image and are blessed and loved equally by God.
Our mission is to inform and encourage the graceful engagement of ministries that enhance the physical, mental, and spiritual health of all God’s children. We recognize that every individual is blessed with gifts to share as well as desires that may be met within a mutually caring community.
Our activities within our ministries vary from setting to setting yet all provide for individuals of every race, ethnicity, creed, class, age, educational background, economic circumstance, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, gender expression, marital status; physical and mental ability to journey together in a mutually supportive manner towards wholistic spiritual, physical, and mental health.
