Some churches and clergy look upon nursing home ministry with an ambivalent feeling, as being just another burden, or another obligation piled on top of everything else. St. John’s has always seen it as something as vital and important. For one thing, those that have long supported our churches and been involved in their ministries and worship should not now be forgotten or neglected just because they are now unable to get out. And secondly, those without a church or faith background often are thinking increasingly about spiritual matters and eternity and greatly relish having someone who dwells on such matters. Besides, many are thrilled to have visitors and entertainment from ‘the outside’. For those reasons, St. John’s is involved on two fronts: we have joined in the Sunday afternoon rotation of services organized by our Ministerial Association, and we have monthly Communion services as well. Church folks are most welcome to join us; in fact, many of the residents are people with long connections to St. John’s and are quite excited to see familiar faces from their past. So please feel free to join us for these services.
