Nursing Home Ministries
St. Michael’s Nursing Home Ministry is one way we actively bring God’s grace out into the broader Arlington community. For nearly 30 years, the St. Michael’s community and additional friends have carried Morning Prayer or Holy Eucharist services to residents of Regency Care of Arlington each Sunday morning and once a month at Powhatan Nursing Home.
The nursing home ministry enables us to offer faith and fellowship to residents, many of whom come faithfully each week to what is often their only church service on Sunday. Worshiping together is very meaningful to them, and to us.
New members of the Nursing Home Ministry are always welcome, particularly in these roles:
- Lay leaders who guide the congregation through the service leaflet
- Helpers who read the Sunday scripture and assist residents
- Musicians who play the digital piano/organ or share other talents so the congregation can enjoy familiar Christian hymns
- Lay Eucharistic ministers (LEMs)
