Going to church is an important part of worship for many Christians, but there are plenty of ways to praise God every day from the comfort of your assisted living community. Making time for daily worship can help nurture your relationship with God and provide spiritual comfort. Below, you can find five easy, effective ways to worship God in and around your home.
Getting together with like-minded people to praise God is a great way to remain socially active and can help you build regular worship into your routine. Members of the Bethesda Gardens Monument assisted living community and their families can worship in the on-site chapel, and the resident chaplain is always available to provide spiritual support and care.
One of the advantages of living in a faith-based assisted living community is the opportunity to form friendships with other Christian seniors. Consider joining a community Bible study group or starting your own to develop your understanding of God's word from your assisted living apartment. Discussing the scriptures with other community members can offer fresh, interesting perspectives and provide seniors with an informal spiritual support circle.
Attending a different place of worship and listening to words of wisdom from a new pastor is a great way to worship God and add variety to your spiritual life. Although there are many churches in Monument, CO, modern technology now makes it possible to join a congregation anywhere in the world.
There are plenty of directories available online to help you find virtual church services to attend from your senior living suite. Christian World Media is a handy service that lists upcoming virtual worship sessions from a wide range of churches and ministries, and it's easy to access. When you find a session that interests you, simply click the green "watch now" button next to the listing at the scheduled start time to watch live. The site also hosts plenty of prerecorded video content that allows users to access Christian ministry and wisdom whenever they need it.
There's nothing more inspiring than God's own creation, and getting out and about in nature is a refreshing way to appreciate His gifts. Fortunately, Monument residents are spoiled for choice when it comes to inspiring natural spaces to visit.
Monument and the surrounding area is home to a range of stunning nature reserves, including the Garden of the Gods Visitor and Nature Center in Colorado Springs. Visitors can enjoy the incredible spectacle of immense natural sandstone formations against the backdrop of the Pikes Peak mountain. You can access various hiking trails from the visitor center, and there are also regular Jeep tours if you prefer not to walk. The center is also an excellent place to take visiting grandchildren, and there are various activities and educational opportunities for families to enjoy together.
There is a wealth of traditional and contemporary Christian music available, and it's easier than ever to access a wide range of content thanks to the internet. Whether you're a fan of familiar hymns or a rock music enthusiast, there should be something to suit every taste.
Playing worship music as a backdrop to spiritual contemplation or while carrying out your daily tasks is an excellent way to focus your attention on God in your assisted living apartment. There are various online directories devoted to providing high-quality Christian music to their users. AllWorship is an online subscription service that provides access to a huge library of advert-free Christian tracks and faith-based content.
Alternatively, you could consider tuning in to a Christian radio station to introduce yourself to new music and access religious broadcasts. Christian Radio is a useful online service that can direct you to the best digital and local stations and help you find fresh content.
Journaling is a lovely way to document your Bible study and prayer sessions and provides a keepsake of your growing relationship with God. There's no right or wrong way to keep a faith journal, and it's an easy way to praise God from your assisted living suite.
Many Christians find that putting their questions and thoughts to paper can help them gain clarity on spiritual issues. Journaling can also help you set and maintain a regular praise schedule, and keeping your journal somewhere visible can serve as a reminder to make time for worship when life gets busy.
You can use any notebook to start a faith journal, but there are many premade journals available in Christian bookstores and online to help you get started. Some journals combine a regular daily and monthly planner with space for written contemplations to make it easier to build prayer and praise into your day-to-day life.
