Dear Brothers and Sisters:

 

Greetings and Happy New Year! We want to review for our friends the free resources we make available for ministry to the elderly and infirm, especially those who live in long-term care settings. The following is a partial list of these materials ( see our website for more info and a complete list):

A Handbook for Nursing Home Ministry 150+ pages of guidelines, information, resources, ideas, tools and program descriptions for ministry in care centers.

 

A Short Primer for Nursing Home Ministry Eight pages of overview for a quick read, hitting the high spots of information and guidelines for care center ministry.

 

Worship Service Programs Each one comprised of a handout set up like a "church bulletin" with a poem, responsive reading, and "order of service" including songs taken from our hymn booklet, Favorite Hymns of Grace. These are selected to compliment the theme of a short sermonette provided with the handout.

 

Training Videos for Nursing Home Ministry These include 1) "Sharing the Gospel in a Secular Setting” with Pastor Mike Smith. 2) "New Perspectives in Long-term Care Ministry" with Elder James Jordan. 3) "Focus on the Field" with Karen Land, facility administrator.

Thank you for helping us with you financial assistance to place these tools at the Lord’s disposal for Him to strengthen the faith of His children among the elderly and infirm. We invite you to join with us in prayer for the Holy Spirit’s anointing to be on these materials and for His strength and leading as we consider additions to these resources. We also ask you to pray with us as we seek God's leading in ministry in the coming year.

 

Love in Christ,

Jerry and Dar
