We recently visited Allied Skilled nursing for a Pre-Thanksgiving program with part of our youth group. The seniors always love the teens! Afterwards they gave out their own home made cookies filled with the special ingredient of love. Have you considered asking the youth at your church to prepare something for Christmas for a nearby home? Now is a perfect time to plan and schedule a Christmas visit! Be blessed!
This second section of our seminar includes helps on how to present your music in the best way possible for the nursing home setting. We have found our youth group to be the most motivated volunteers in our church. Listen in or add your own suggestions. This ministry exists as an encouragement to anyone wishing to volunteer at your local nursing home. Be blessed!
This is the first in a short seminar on Music Ministry in nursing homes. We filmed this live at a youth meeting last week and have broken it into three parts: Structure (the songs that go into the service) Presentation, and relationship. To put this in computer terms we have the hardware, software and operating system. There are a lot of practical insights that will help anyone either already involved or wanting to get started in nursing home outreach. With the holidays nearly upon us, now is the perfect time to begin planning at least one visit to a nursing home in your community. We are hoping to go to our home once for Thanksgiving and once for Christmas. God bless you as you commit to this needed ministry!
