A Joyous Fellowship and Ministry with Residents of a Skilled Nursing Facility.
First United Methodist Church of Van Alstyne is actively involved in an outreach ministry with the residents of Meadowbrook Care Center in Van Alstyne.
"Rise in the presence of the aged,
show respect for the elderly
and revere your God."
Meadowbrook is a long-term care and skilled nursing facility as well as a rehab facility for seniors with varying levels of disabilities.
A group of men and women from our church and from another church gather at Meadowbrook every Tuesday morning at 10:30 for a worship service.
Scriptures are read, devotionals are given, and prayers are spoken.
And, backed by guitar and piano, songs are sung with the residents joining in singing old familiar hymns.
Communion is offered once a month by our Pastor.
The fellowship we share will often bring big smiles and lots of laughter from the residents as well as from our church group.
The Meadowbrook Outreach Ministry welcomes anyone who enjoys being a part of a church group that helps to provide a spiritual need for the elderly. No musical talent is required, just a caring heart and a helping hand.
For a very rewarding outreach ministry, join us every Tuesday at 10:30am at Meadowbrook Care Center. For directions to the Meadowbrook facility in Van Alstyne, click here Map showing location of Meadowbrook.
