Cottonwood is blessed to have a Parish Nurse. Cherie Paulsen reaches out to people
in the congregation with medical needs while also educating the congregation about
medical issues. If you have medical concerns in your life don't hesitate to check in with
SHINGLES VIRUS CAN STRIKE AT ANY TIME! Cherie Paulson, our Parish
Nurse, has prepared valuable information on this painful ailment which is available
on request from the church office as well as on the Literature Table.
Defibrillator Device Available
The church has purchased an AED, automatic external defibrillator device. The
American Red Cross will come to the church in February to conduct a training class
on adult/child CPR which is necessary to be trained on the proper use of the AED.
The training provides individuals the knowledge and skills necessary to recognize
and provide basic care for breathing and cardiac emergencies for adults, children,
and infants, including how to use an AED for victims of sudden cardiac arrest.
There are two classes available:
1. CPR/AED for Adult/Child and Infants, a 4 hour class for $75.00 per person with
minimum of 10 participants.
2. CPR/AED for Adult/Child, a 3 hour class for $60.00 per person with a minimum
of 10 participants.
I need to know how many members from the congregation or outside would be
interested in taking a class to become more informed, and be trained in CPR and
the AED. YOU MAY SAVE A LIFE. Please let me know, via the church office, if you
are interested and which class holds the most interest. Cherie Paulson, Parish
