Worship Services are Beneficial to Assisted Living Houston Residents

Many independent living Houston residents probably miss the times we attended worship services or Sunday school from childhood throughout our lives. It was part of worship_services_are_beneficial_to_assisted_living_houston_residentsliving then and it can be now in our Houston retirement home if we want it to be.

Right here at our assisted living Houston community, each and every week, there are two Worship Services on Sunday, one in the morning and one in the afternoon.  There’s an additional worship and singing service every Wednesday after dinner.  A Catholic Mass is held every Saturday morning. Thank you to many of our clergy. On right, is True Word Ministry Pastor Nick Babineaux and wife Anita, taken at the Clergy Appreciation Breakfast during our 40th anniversary festivities. Treemont is blessed to have so many generous clergy, including: Tom (see below photo on right) and Violet Ellis, Treemont Chaplains, also from Tallowood Baptist Church, Bill Steel of Chapelwood United Methodist Church, Mark Harwell of First United Methodist Church. Residents are always delighted to have Wilma Carr plays piano at many of the services. Jerry Koch from St. Cyril of Alexandria plays the guitar at Saturday Mass. He then stays and does a sing-a-long following the service.

In addition there is an opportunity to join in three bible studies every week:  Monday afternoon, Tuesday morning and Thursday evening. Resident Lois McCall is a bible worship_services_assisted_living_houstonstudy teacher as is Ray Scott from Church of Christ and Ron Lemon from Second Baptist Church. 

There are other opportunities for fellowship and Sing-a-Longs and getting to know one another. Study your monthly and weekly calendars for the times and place.   Also, be sure to check the Daily Activity Boards outside of the Dining Room.

All of this is made possible by the talented volunteers that bring these opportunities.   Some are clergy and some are volunteers from St. Cyril of Alexandria Catholic Church, Tallowood Baptist Church, Second Baptist Church, Chapelwood Methodist Church and First Methodist Church (Westside Campus), and True Word Ministry. To them we offer our heartfelt thanks.    

JOIN IN, SING-A-LONG, RENEW, REFRESH
