OCONEE SENIOR LIVING FACILITY
The monthly visit to Oconee House Senior Living is on the first Wednesday of each month from 2:00 - 3:30 p.m.
Carpooling from the church parking lot is available, leaving at 1:40 p.m.
Each month volunteers spend time
with the residents while playing Bingo and bringing a little joy into their
otherwise quiet lives. A devotional starts our time together. Volunteers help
those that have a little problem seeing or keeping up with their cards, while
others pass out the baskets filled with prizes such as chips, crackers,
puzzles, and other items. After Bingo is finished, where everyone wins, we
treat the residents to a delicious dessert along with fellowship.
Each Christmas season we try to spread some Christmas cheer to the residents. The December celebration is fun filled with singing and music from our Hand Bell Choir lead by Susan Porter, a devotional reading by Melinda Spivey, and delicious desserts from our sisters Barbara Janzen and Christine Ellison.
If you have an interest in bringing the love of Jesus to these elderly residents each month for just a few hours by volunteering or would like to sign up to volunteer to make a dessert for this ministry, please call Suzanne Schumacher 706-485-5788 or Johna Unger 770-378-1642 to volunteer. This ministry is also flexible, simply RSVP when able to participate.
