Dementia-friendly church service: Beauty (2022)

Updated today, this week’s nondenominational worship service is on beauty, a delightful topic for elders (and everyone else). I encourage you to use the prompts in the video to have discussions about what different people consider beautiful to their five senses — in addition to beautiful actions, such as the woman Jesus noticed, who put her last two coins into the temple treasury (Luke 21: 1-4).

As always, this video church service is suitable to older adults with Alzheimer’s and other dementias.

Watch the 47-minute church service on Beauty here.

Lovely testimonies

I get the most wonderful notes every week from people around the world who are stepping out in faith to serve the spiritual needs of elders — the exact people for whom I created this site. Here are two from this week 😇

I have a church services ministry in our local  rest homes. This coming year I have been asked to do services  for one of the memory care units. This is a huge step outside my comfort  level,  but I can see God’s hand in this.  I will need Him beside me every step! I asked Mr Google  what he could suggest for  “elder care short church service”.  And found your beautiful  site. I have downloaded all your music and can now take this with my little Bluetooth  speaker for weekly 30min “Songs,  Psalms and Poetry” sessions for these memory care  residents. Thank you for  your time and for  making all your  music  freely available and so easy to download. These shorter hymn versions will be perfect.

From Paul, U.S.:

After sitting in church for 30 years, I decided I wanted to be involved in ministry. I responded to a request on Facebook Oct 2021 , that a local care home was in need of someone to bring in ministry. I responded – So did they 🙂 The search was on – How do I do it ? The first site I came across was yours. It has given me all the resources I need to confidentially share the word of God – I have not looked back – I visit Thursday evenings at 6PM – With so much more you offer – I have used the sermons and Psalms – Prayers and Blessings

Paul, United States

Peace be with you,

    I’m sorry I’m so late in getting back to you but wanted to let you know that I did use the lesson you wrote on 1 Peter 5 about casting all your anxieties on God. It went very well—I think the people got a lot out of it. Thanks again for creating that lesson and for all the others you have written. They are very much appreciated.
