Assisted Living Outreach
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,
I shall walk in the house of the Lord forever. – Psalm 23:6
How encouraging it is to know that God’s goodness and mercy is with us always. In the Elder Care ministry, it is our desire to share the love of Christ through word and deed with all seniors in our community. We endeavor to share in times of joy and be a friend in times of trial.
We make weekly visits to area assisted living facilities and share God’s Word, times of prayer, singing, and occasional snacks. At one facility, we have teams on rotation to provide a weekly Sunday service with teaching, music, and fellowship. We also host events throughout the year such as spa days, fall festivals, and help with Christmas card writing.
We are eager to welcome those with a heart to minister to our friends who have spent decades loving others. All that is needed is one of the following:
- A desire to make an impact in someone’s life
- A love for the elderly or forgotten
- An interest in singing
- A talent for playing a musical instrument (piano already provided!)
- An interest in playing games or working puzzles
