The Mt. Olive Baptist Church Senior Nurses Board celebrated its 83rd Anniversary on April 30.

Arzella Carson was named the 2017 Nurse of the Year.

In a news release, the board said she is a faithful member of the Nurses Ministry, attends Bible study and is married to Calvin Carson. She is graceful and always has a smile to share. Arzella Carson loves the Lord, her pastor, family and church members.

The Senior Nurses Board was organized in 1934 under the leadership of the late Rev. T. H. Harris. Through the years, the board has undergone many transitions. By the grace of God and the assistance of the pastor, Dr. Charles E. Gray, the membership has grown tremendously.

The Senior Nurses meet on the first Saturday of each month at 1 p.m. Their primary duties are to take care of the pastor’s needs during all home services and when the pastor visits other churches. They also assist the congregation with its needs., administer first aid or emotional support to those in need, provide nursery care to young children, visit the sick in the hospital and assist the bereaved at funerals.

The guest speaker was the Rev. Steve Allen, pastor of Shiloh Baptist Church in Greensboro.
