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!
We held a single night training session for our nursing home volunteers who wanted to learn more about music ministry. This is the Introduction to a three part series covering the specific challenges involved in singing and playing for our residents. If have any questions or would like to offer your own insights we would be delighted to hear. Be blessed!
As I was singing for nursing home ministry several years ago one of the ladies asked me, “What have you surrendered?” That was a difficult question but is one that we should each ask ourselves each day. “What have I surrendered today?”
Ministry everywhere is about being in the place of a servant and being a servant is about surrender. I pray you will be blessed and challenged today to surrender one more thing to Christ. Be blessed as you do!
