The good news is we are expanding little by little in our outreach to the nursing home community in our area. This month we are invited to begin bringing music to the memory care people at Watermark in Trinity Florida.

The purpose of our music is not so much to entertain as to draw out people into joining in worship with hymns such as The Old Rugged Cross. For more information on nursing home ministry please feel free to contact me by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. There are many training and inspirational videos available at the Youtube channel Pastorpete51 and some books and training manuals for a minimal cost on Amazon. Have a blessed week and thank you for taking time out of your day to listen!
