Spiritual Care is the Cornerstone of Christian Care Communities

Since 1884, Christian Care has focused on the spiritual growth and the positive difference it makes in the quality of life for those in our care.  Sometimes life changes and circumstances can result in feelings of isolation and grief.  It is during this time that our Chaplains can be most helpful with comfort, prayers, support and a friend through life’s journey.  Chaplains meet residents and family members where they are in that journey and listen to concerns with compassion and acceptance.

Residents are encouraged to engage frequently with community spiritual celebrations and religious services to enhance well-being and ease life transitions.  Living your faith at Christian Care Communities includes:

  • Chaplains to guide prayers, devotions and scripture study
  • Comfort and support for families including hospital visitation
  • Chapel services, celebrations and singing programs
  • Life-plan counseling

2022 Advent Devotional

Advent Devotions from the Chaplains at Christian Care Communities

“A Son Is Given”

In A Son Is Given, we look at the promise of God to send His Messiah as fulfilled in Jesus. The Heavenly Father made good on His ancient pledge. In Jesus we have the love of God come to earth in the form of a Child, who is for us the Savior of the world.

Our Chaplains collaborated with Lutheran Home Ministries for this complimentary Devotional to use in your church, home or personal use to strengthen and encourage your faith as you do the same for others.  This gift is perfect for personal reflection or to share with family, friends and congregations, these seasonal meditations will help prepare you to celebrate the true meaning of these seasons.

Blessings from the Chaplains at Christian Care Communities!

What is Advent?

The church divides the year into different seasons that emphasize the life of Christ and the life of the church. Beginning on Sunday, November 27, 2022, we will enter the season of the church year called Advent. Advent is the season of preparation and anticipation leading up to Christmas, and continuing to Epiphany January 6, 2023.

The focus of Advent is two-fold. On the one hand, we prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who came into the world as both God and Man so that our sins might be forgiven. On the other hand, we anticipate the day when Jesus will return to Earth in His glory. 

Advent, then, is a time for us to repent and believe. Knowing that Jesus was born to forgive our sins, we repent (admit our failures to God) and believe that we are forgiven because of the death and resurrection of Jesus on our behalf. Also, knowing that Jesus is returning, we repent and believe that when He returns, He will give us eternal life.
