Parish Nurse News
Last month I would not have imagined how our lives were going to change!

Just when I think that I know what I need to know, something else has been announced on the news that impacts our lives! So I’m not going to try to tell you the latest! But I will encourage you to take comfort in what has not changed!

Our Lord still reigns! His plan for us is good! Our help comes from the Lord! His love for us is an everlasting love. He died for our sins so that we might live forever. No coronavirus can separate us from him!

That being said, it is still wise to listen to the state and local authorities who know best how to “Slow the Spread!” Words like social distancing, schools closing, practice good hygiene, when and whom to call if you feel sick (your health care provider), when to test for the virus, high risk populations, and avoiding social gatherings in groups of more than 10 people are just some of the important items to follow as we get through this together.

I would like to ask you to do something for me! Might you be willing to touch base with an old friend, member or not. Maybe a phone call? Maybe a card? Ask how they are doing? Visit for a bit. Remind them that God loves them and is in control. Talk about our Livestreaming at David’s Star, Sunday or Lenten services, Pastor Woldts’ bible study on Philippians or Pastor Loeschers’ daily devotional thoughts. Some may not realize how easy it is to stay in God’s Word via our David’s Star website. People are looking for comfort in these uncertain times.

‘So do not fear, for I am with you; I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10

On another matter altogether, WLC is (maybe?) offering a Biology Camp August 3-7 that will explore DNA, cells, proteins, bacteria, and viruses, along with the ethics and career opportunities within biology. The camp gives high school students and incoming college freshmen hands-on lab and field experience. Sounds interesting to me! To learn more and to register visit

Resting in Jesus,

Know Any Nurses?  Maybe You can help!  

Christian Nurses are richly blessed-blessed to know Jesus as savior and blessed with valuable medical knowledge and skill-sets.  So it's only natural for them to want to network in order to grow their knowledge and skills, to fellowship with like-minded Christian nurses and to team up to help others in need.

That's what brought together a group of WELS nurses in the greater Milwaukee area last spring.  Since then they've been working toward establishing a national association of WELS nurses to facilitate all of the above.  To learn more, please check out their new website:
