The Nursing Home Ministry is just as much a part of our calling here at “Living Waters Church” as is any of the other ministries that we offer to those who are in need in our community, it is more than just holding church services, it is a privilege and an honor to have our hearts so moved with the presence of God’s love, to those who would be considered too old or not productive anymore!
Their wisdom and sacrifices have caused this country to become great, and without them, (this now “Forgotten Generation”) where would we be? God so loved the elderly that he sent Jesus to die for them!
Psalm 71:18 “Now also when I am old and grey headed, O God, forsake me not; until I have showed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to every one that is to come.”
We heard some say, “that they feel they are forsaken”, we come to bring hope, to those who feel hopeless, that if their family doesn’t come to visit, that there is one who will never leave, nor forsake them, Jesus Christ! Many have given their lives to the Lord during these services!
We are currently holding full services Singing, Exhorting, Preaching, and giving altar calls, (to some this may be their only/last chance to hear the “Word” of Salvation!”). We are now ministering in two Nursing Homes per month; Also one on one visitation and praying with them!
