Helping at Woodside Nursing Home on Sundays
Members of Grace serve on second Sunday of every month at Woodside Nursing Home by assisting with the weekly Lutheran worship service. They help transport residents to and from chapel and assist during the service as needed.
How You Can Help
If you would like to volunteer, please enter the main entrance of the nursing home (1040 Pilgrim Way) at 9:30 a.m. and proceed to the chapel to meet the other volunteers. They will be able to walk with you as you learn the routine. After the residents are brought to chapel, we stay for the church service and assist taking residents back to their rooms or dining room. Volunteers generally have all residents returned by 11:15. This is a rewarding activity and an excellent service project for confirmation students and their mentors.
