Christmas can be a lonely time of the year for the elderly in our community. Pathways Church has provided Christmas Stockings filled with goodies for residents of The Bridges, Rennes, and Oakridge Gardens for the past three years. This is a special time of the year to bring your children with you to serve the elderly in our community. While there, the team sings Christmas songs, plays games, and talks with the residents to help them feel the love of what Christmas is all about - Jesus' birth!
Bring a smile to an elderly person living at an area nursing home on Saturday, December 16 from 10AM-12PM and 1-3PM.
Here's how to get involved in the Nursing Home Outreach:
- Sign out a stocking between November 12-December 10
- Return the filled stocking to Pathways Church by Sunday, December 10
- Spread holiday cheer through songs and smiles
Bridges and Rennes Nursing Homes 10AM
Oakridge Gardens Nursing Home 1PM
Teams will meet in the church lobby at 9:30AM and 12:30PM for instruction and prayer before the event. We will carpool over as a group. Upon arriving, we will sing Christmas carols and visit with the residents. Don't worry if you can't sing, it's your smile they long to see!
