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. 

What are the opportunities?
