  Christian Science Nurse Assistant class
Jun 5 all-day

                                                                                              Class begins Tuesday June 5, 2018

 

So often members of our Church are listening for ways in which they might serve the Cause of Christian Science and humanity more broadly and practically.  Tenacre is an organization where Christian Science is lived and practiced through the services we offer.  Those relying on Christian Science come to Tenacre as a haven and place for prayer, study and healing.  We offer two-week classes for members of The Mother Church who would like to serve fellow Christian Scientists during these times.  The class prepares members to be Christian Science nursing assistants, serving as religious ministers at Tenacre. 

This assistant role doesn’t require direct oversight of the guests (patients), but it forwards the ease and facilitation of Christian Science nursing.  Students are introduced to the ethics, spiritual foundation and basic practical ideas which enables one to assist the Christian Science nurses in simple ways.

The Christian Science nursing assistants provide such things as:

  • one to one spiritual reassurance;
  • reading to those seeking healing in Christian Science;
  • accompanying guests for walks and wheel chair rides;
  • having inspiring conversations with guests;
  • assisting at mealtime; and
  • making beds and bringing order to guests’ rooms.

This ministry provides an avenue where one’s own trust in God and the healing power of Christian Science can bring hope and healing to others.

The next class we’re offering begins June 5, 2018.  Individuals who are at least 18 may apply for full-time employment as Christian Science nursing assistants.  There would not be an expectation or requirement to continue on in Christian Science nurse’s education, although that would be an option.

We invite you to consider joining us in this heartfelt spiritual ministry.  Please call 609.279.2328 or email Christine Hein at chein@tenacre.org with questions or for an application.  You are also welcome to visit our website, www.tenacre.org, for more information.
