Our Online Service team developed a vision for reaching the residents at the retirement homes in our community in January of 2013 by taking our church to the retirement homes. Our Lord has opened many doors and this ministry has expanded from viewing by one retirement home with 15 residents participating to eleven retirement homes with over 150 residents participating. Every Sunday team members pick up newsletters and arrives at a retirement home (within five miles of our church) at approximately 10:30 to host our church worship services. Our team connects an iPad or laptop to the specific retirement home's wifi signal or cellular service and big screen television in order to view our full 10:50 worship service through the LIVE link on our church website home page. Many of the residents sing along with the music and bring their Bibles to read and reference during the message. Residents have an opportunity to complete a guest card if they have prayer requests or would like additional information about our church. Some residents have requested envelopes and a few have joined our church. Those who have joined have had their picture taken, received a New Member bag, and additional information as a new church member. Some of the groups who view our worship services dine together at the facility after the service.
Our Online Service team believes in taking the Gospel to our community and we continue to see our Lord blessing that effort. Retirement homes we are currently ministering to are:
• Legend at Mingo Road (Assisted Living and Memory Care)
• Autumn Leaves
• Legend at Tulsa Hills
• Linden at Stonehaven Square
• Clare Bridge
