Convalescent Homes Ministry
We take church to the mentally challenged and elderly, 18 - 100 years old, that cannot attend a local fellowship. We bring them music, teaching, and prayer. The odds are 3,000,000 to 1 that a person over 65 will come to know the Lord. We've seen that God does not honor odds. Many people have come to know the Lord in the Senior and Convalescent homes. Pray for more volunteers. Pray for strength and health for the men and women who go to the ministries. Pray for the unsaved to come to Jesus and growth for the saved.We visit several Senior Homes on Sundays and Wednesdays. Currently we are serving in California Care, Lakeside Special Care, and Alpine View Lodge.
Our objective is to bring light to a dark place. To share the love of Christ with those that are lost and/ or oppose themselves. Showing them forgiveness of sin, faith in Christ and salvation in Jesus.
Worship for 25-30 minutes. Then Bible study for thirty minutes. Sometimes answering questions on what the Bible really says. Our attendance is usually 12-20 people.
Several people have openly received Christ over the years and look forward to going to Heaven with Him. The weekly study and worship are a great confort to those of the faith, they look forward to it each day and each week.
Prayer and Praise:
Pray for help of those on medication on basically imprisoned in the facility with no relief insight that in their present situation they might receive hope in Christ.
