Nursing Home Ministry
The Faith Presbyterian Nursing Home Ministry team meets on the first Thursday of the month at
2:00 PM. The meeting is facilitated by Nursing Home Ministry Coordinator, Margaret Jo
Cogswell-Vaughn, with the full support of Pastor Virginia Studer. The meetings are a place for
the members to share stories about visits to care homes plus possible concerns. All of this takes
place in a safe environment. Information and upcoming activities are also discussed.
The team is faithful to growing in understanding the many issues facing our elders. They
continue to learn about the “culture of care” in nursing homes.
A team member comments, “We are there to try and convey to the residents that they are
important to God and to us.”
“We believe in celebrating with the residents when they are up and sympathizing with them about their downs.”
All Nursing Home Ministry members agree that it is a joy and a blessing to be part of this team, receiving more than each has given.
