We are looking to partner with churches and ministries to provide a weekly Sunday Worship Service to our residents and clients. Services are held on Sunday afternoons from 3:00-4:00pm in the Bolthouse Center Gymnasium, and should consist of 1) singing/music, 2) prayer and 3) preaching/teaching. The preaching /teaching time should not exceed 20 minutes in length and should be designed for an adult audience. Piano, overhead and sound equipment is available. Attendance for services may vary between 60 and 100 people. Although we prefer groups who are able to commit to a regular schedule (monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly), we welcome those who can come less frequently but still desire to minister to our people.

Our residents love concerts, puppet shows, and missionary presentations. Share your ideas and talents with our people.
