It has been such a privilege for our Westheights community to be the hands and feet of Jesus to our next-door neighbours at Forest Heights Long Term Care Centre.
Our students, kids and their leaders are excited to have been invited back to lead a 7th Sunday service!
We count this a unique opportunity—a demonstration that neither age nor ‘disability’ bars us as Christ-followers from being co-worshippers, as well as worship leaders, teachers, pastors, and encouragers, as we use our gifts to inspire each other and give glory to God.
The students and children plan to serve this community of seniors (and others who are in need of long term care) as they:
• bless and encourage the residents
• lead in worship
• read scripture
• tell Bible stories or share stories of faith
• inspire worship moments
• teach and/or share mini-sermons
Those who are comfortable may also have a chance to talk with or pray with residents—and we fully expect that some residents, as fellow-believers, will pray for, encourage and bless us in return!
CLICK HERE to register your child today to let us know that your child/student (SK through Grade 12) is able to attend to help lead the service at Forest Heights on Sunday, March 30, from 10:20 to 11:15.
On the day of, we will meet at 9:30 in Kid Central to rehearse the order of the service before we walk to the centre.
Participation in certain parts of the service may involve rehearsal at home, and/or extra rehearsals, which will take place on Sundays at noon in January, February and March. SIGN UP ASAP, and stay tuned for a schedule of who’s rehearsing, and when…!
