SOS: Give God's Love, Get Wisdom



The October Simple Opportunities to Serve (SOS) featured ministry is Portage Trail Chapel.

Wisdom is with the aged, and understanding in length of days.

Job 12:12, ESV



God provides us with wisdom when we minister to the aged.

Many times when we seek to minister the love of God to the aged and the sick, we encounter unexpected blessings. They can be a fount of calmness, understanding and wisdom in this age of addiction to adrenalin.


How can I minister?

Christ Community Chapel’s outreach, Portage Trail Chapel, is a great way. This is a worship service ministry for the residents of the Portage Trail Village independent living facility for seniors at 45 Cathedral Lane in Cuyahoga Falls.   Since many residents cannot get to church, every first and third Monday, Christ Community Chapel brings live worship and a pastoral message to the residents.

SOS: Ministering to the Elderly


The October Simple Opportunities to Serve (SOS) featured ministry is Portage Trail Chapel.

I command you to show respect for older people and to obey me with fear and trembling.

Leviticus 19:32 CEV




Our relationship with God is reflected in how we care for others.

We are to love God reverentially in worship and serving. And we are to extend agape love to others, including the elderly.


How can I minister God’s love to the elderly?

One way is by linking up with Christ Community Chapel’s Portage Trail Chapel ministry. Portage Trail Chapel is a worship service ministry for the residents of the Portage Trail Village independent living facility for seniors at 45 Cathedral Lane in Cuyahoga Falls.   Since many residents cannot get to church, every first and third Monday, Christ Community Chapel brings live worship and a pastoral message to the residents.

Simple Opportunities to Serve at Portage Trail Chapel


The October Simple Opportunities to Serve (SOS) featured ministry is Portage Trail Chapel.

And when did we see you sick…and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’

From Matthew 25:39-40, ESV


Jesus has a heart for those who are sick and isolated.

Even a small, simple effort to bring cheer to the sick, isolated and elderly in the name of Jesus Christ is seen as a love offering to Him.
   


How can I be Jesus to the elderly?

You can pitch in at Portage Trail Chapel.

Portage Trail Chapel is a worship service ministry to benefit the residents of the Portage Trail Nursing Home.   These residents are unable to get to church service so every first and third Monday, Christ Community Chapel brings live worship and a pastoral message to the residents.
