Person must be vaccinated and wear a mask and have temperature taken. Also must agree with SpiritCare's ethics statement.

We are looking for a pianist who can play on the 1st Thursday of the month at Hopkins Manor in Redwood City to accompany a worship service. You can play music before, and during the service when the pastor serves Holy Communion to frail care community residents.

You may also have to play Happy Birthday.

Then the same service is repeated at Gordon Manor on Gordon Street in Redwood City.

This is an ongoing opportunity - but because I put in a start date I had to put an end date - so you can do it for a year or more...

About SpiritCare Ministry to Seniors

Location:

1443 HOWARD AVE, BURLINGAME, CA 94010, US

Mission Statement

The purpose of SpiritCare Ministry to Seniors is to serve the spiritual and emotional needs of the elderly living in long-term care centers by: sharing the comfort and encouragement of the gospel of Jesus Christ providing chaplaincy services for hospital residents and staff organizing and supervising worship and visitation teams from various churches and community groups educating the public about issues of aging and spirituality through publications, seminars, and special events

Description

For over 30 years we have provided worship services in care communities in the San Francisco Bay Area. We need volunteers who can help with the services by accompanying hymn-singing on a piano, singing, reading scripture and helping hand-out music. We also need volunteers to help with our administration, helping in outreach to volunteers and volunteer management. We serve over 60 care communities in the San Francisco Bay Area and are looking for volunteer pastors who can take a home and provide a communion service once a month there. We served about 1400 residents a month in care communities. We need people who can visit regularly to chat with older adults one-on-one - maybe read a story, share a game, pray with people or share pictures. We also need board members who have a passion for helping older adults and agree with our mission to help raise funds. This is a ministry that families with children can participate in. Children can communicate with elders by sharing their stories, pictures and toys. The ministry also helps children develop public speaking and musical talent by encouraging them to help in the worship services - for example a group of children may sing a song or play music with a guitar. We also have talented musical children who can give recitals of acoustic instruments.
