Members of our congregation are encouraged to participate with Pastor Helen Bledsoe and the worship team in services provided on the first and second Saturday of each month at 10am. The first Saturday is at Trinity Ridge, located at 2140 Medical Park Drive, Hickory, NC 28602. This service is held in the chapel and is open to both short-stay guests and long-term residents. The second Saturday is at Abernethy Laurels, located at 102 Leonard Avenue, Newton, NC 28658. This service is held in the Memory Care Unit and open to all the residents.
Initially we thought that we would be ministering to the individuals in these homes, but soon learned that we were the ones being blessed. Those attending the services are so responsive and appreciative when given the opportunity to join in singing favorite hymns and hearing an inspirational message from the Word of God. The desire of the team is to encourage these wonderful people and share the love of Jesus with them through scripture, song and spending a few minutes talking with those attending individually.
