NURSING HOME MINISTRY Loving & Caring For The Elderly
[ALWAYS] TREAT WITH GREAT CONSIDERATION AND GIVE AID TO THOSE WHO ARE TRULY WIDOWED (SOLITARY AND WITHOUT SUPPORT).
I TIMOTHY 5:3
Charles & Connie Davies
In obedience to the Word of God, the Word of Faith Fellowship has faithfully committed itself to ministry of the needy in our local nursing homes for over two decades. We believe in the sanctity of life and that every human being has value and worth in the eyes of God no matter what their age.
Those participating in our nursing home ministry include Word of Faith Fellowship members of all ages—toddlers to senior citizens. We have seen miracles as we reach out with God’s love to the elderly and to those who are no longer able to live with family and loved ones. These precious people have contributed to our community as fathers, mothers, businessmen, civic leaders, ministers, volunteers, and even some veterans who have served our country in years past. They deserve the best of care and our heartfelt appreciation. We, at the Word of Faith Fellowship have received them into our hearts as “family” and consider them very precious and dear friends.
Willow Ridge assisted living on Tryon Road in Rutherfordton, NC has welcomed us to visit those who are permanent residents or abiding there for temporary rehabilitation for over 20 years. In December 2008, we began our monthly visitations to White Oak Manor on Oscar Justice Road in Rutherfordton, NC. In addition to our monthly services in both nursing facilities, we have occasional visitations to visit other homes in Rutherford County. Preaching of the Word of God, praise and worship, prayer, and one-on-one fellowship include the ministry outreach to our “family members” in both nursing homes. We encourage their responsive participation in our services so that many are now singing solos, sharing their testimonies, requesting particular songs, and reaching out to their fellow residents in the love of God.
We would like to thank the directors of Willow Ridge nursing facility and White Oak Manor for giving us the priceless privilege of sharing God’s love with their residents and for receiving from them in return. The very special relationships we have made over the years have greatly enriched our lives forever.
