As part of their ongoing participation in the monthly community service program called Loving Spencer, the Spencer Adventist and Bethany Lutheran churches recently came together to visit three area senior care facilities.

Isaiah 35:3-4 says, “Strengthen the weak hands, and make firm the feeble knees. Say to those who have an anxious heart, ‘Be strong; fear not!’” Because feelings of loneliness can negatively impact a person’s physical and mental health, our aim was to brighten the residents’ day. Flowers were handed out, crafts were made, and games were played, bringing joy to both the residents and those who volunteered.
