Dementia-friendly church service: Suffering

This week’s updated nondenominational worship service (now slightly shorter and, I hope, with balanced sound) takes on suffering. As we ask “how long, oh Lord” in the midst of hardship and confusion (Habakkuk 1:1), I hope this service encourages you and your elders to “stand at the watchpost … and look out to see what [the Lord] will say” (Hab. 2:1).

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

Watch the 44-minute church service on suffering here.

Here’s the written church agenda on suffering if you want to provide this service yourself (and I encourage you to do so!).

Peace be with you,

    My mother has dementia and my father died about a month ago. She reads all the time and I’m trying to write her scriptures to help her with her grieving and verses of praise. So she can have them all together because she is not able to look them up herself. I am also putting songs of praise in it too. Most of them are songs she sung in church, very easy to remember the music to them. Please pray that what I am doing helps her with her grief. If you know any thing that would help me I would really appreciate it. Thank you and God bless you work with dementia people. When I have some extra money I will be send it to you ministry. I am on a fixed income but will try to get some extra to send.
