WELS Nurses Association
Coming up soon...
Spotlight on the New postings:
Samaritan Partners Caregiver Support Group at St. John's Wawautosa, WI has invited Pastor Behringer from Special Ministries, to speak at their May gathering on May 28th at 6:30pm. The topic for the evening is "Boundaries"! Open to all! Questions to Carol @ email@example.com
When confronted with their lack of boundaries, many sincere dedicated Christians ask good questions:
1. Can I set limits and still be a loving person?
2. What are legitimate boundaries?
3. What is someone is upset or hurt by my boundaries?
4. How do I answer someone who wants my time, love, energy, or money?
5. Why do I feel guilty or afraid when I consider setting boundaries?
6. How do boundaries relate to submission?
7. Aren’t boundaries selfish?

WELSNA Goals for 2013...The future of the WELS Nurses Association holds many opportunities, and we pray the Lord will bless our efforts going forward, as He has in the past. We plan to continue to be a resource for all WELS nurses with the information on the website. We would wish to expand the information and resources available, as well as grow the database so more nurses are connected. We wish to see more engagement by the nurses within their congregations and communities. Our mission statement is, “Nurses working together as servants of Jesus Christ” and our hope is that the WELS nurses feel confident in putting that into practice. Finally, we hope to work with and support other ministries within the WELS to serve the Lord through service to his people.
