Dementia-friendly church service: Patience (2022) — and a format question

This week’s nondenominational worship service video, updated for 2022, is on patience. This particular virtue resonates with just about everyone — because who among us hasn’t been impatient at some (many) times?

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

Watch the 44-minute worship service video on patience here.

Leave a comment below: What do you think of the white bar to highlight text?

One question: I’m experimenting with using a white bar across the bottom of the screen to highlight text, such as questions during the homily (see right). Please let me know what you think: Is this format easier to read? Or does it interfere with closed captions? Thanks for adding your feedback in the comments below.

Peace be with you,

    Hi Elisa
    I’m running a bit, but I did take a quick look and I really like the added text bars. I think it will strengthen your message.
    You do nice work, sister, and you have a good spirit. I know that is a gift from the Lord.
    Have a great day!

    Nursing home residents are lonely and fearful about their future.
    Our training and ministry resources equip Christians to become the friends who
    help them find hope and peace in Jesus.

    Both the residents and the visitors are finding one of life’s greatest treasures –
    eternal friendships in the Lord.
    Come and see!
