Homestead Nursing Home Services: Every Sunday at 3:00 p.m. there is a worship service at the Homestead Nursing Home. Every 7 weeks we lead one of those services and enjoy ministering to the residents that live there. Our elders also take communion on a regular basis to anyone who requests it. God gives us opportunity to serve Him by ministering to our senior saints in “our own backyard”.
We participate in the efforts of the Washington County Ministerial Association. This cooperative group of churches promotes community unity worship during the Thanksgiving and Easter seasons, and special unity worship services at other times of the year. We work together in a Jail Chaplaincy program, the Angel Tree program, the Homestead Worship Service and promoting Bible study. We help distribute food to help local families through the Harvesters program.
As part of the Washington County Ministerial Association we participate in the local Food Pantry. Jesus said, “When you have done it unto one of the least of these, you have done it unto me.” (Matthew 25:34-37) He was talking about feeding the hungry, clothing those who were in need, visiting the sick, etc. He spoke of meeting needs around us as an indicator of who the “sheep” (His true followers) really are. Call the office or Jim and Carla to get connected. (402-879-3570)
We also have a team of Christians in our “flock” who look for opportunities to meet needs in the name of Christ. They are the “Salt and Light” Team. Contact the office or one of our elders if you become aware of such a need. We want God to be glorified as we continually look for ways to be “salt and light”. (Matthew 5:13-16)
We also support King Solomon Christian Service Camp in Solomon, Kansas. Click on the blue letters to check out all they have to offer at the camp website.
