On Saturday, April 13, 2019, we’ll be showing our neighbours at Forest Heights Long Term Care (right next door to Westheights) the love of God in practical ways. There are two ways to be involved:
OPTION ONE: COFFEE SERVICE AND INDOOR HELP
Care for and support the residents of Forest Heights Long Term Care by serving coffee and tea, handing out plants to residents, portering or walking residents to and from their rooms, perhaps playing games, and just hanging out and having a conversation. RSVP to Charlene Neuman or sign-up in the Westheights foyer if you would like to be involved.
This is where our men can be especially helpful, with portering wheelchair-bound residents to and from their rooms, serving coffee/tea and socializing. Kids in Grades 2 and up are welcome to help with these roles, if accompanied by an adult.
OPTION TWO: SPA SERVICES
Let’s pamper the residents at Forest Heights Long-Term Care with facials, hand massages, and manicures. Even our youngest babies and kids can help by visiting with the residents. RSVP to Charlene Neuman or sign-up in the Westheights foyer if you would like to be involved.
All ages are welcome as the residents enjoy visits with babies, kids, teens and grown-ups! Each child must be accompanied by an adult. Only kids in Grades 2 and up will be assigned SPA volunteer roles.
Please arrive by 9:30 am in the Westheights foyer to divide into our teams and head out to our pre-arranged locations, wrapping up at noon.
We wholeheartedly encourage you to sign up to be part of this practical application of loving our neighbours. What a great way to meet some residents before Westheights Kids heads over to lead a service the next morning on Sunday, April 14th!
Jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.” Matthew 22:37-40
“Each one of us needs to look after the good of the people around us, asking ourselves, ‘How can I help?’” Romans 15:2 (MSG)
