Religious Services Offered at Rolling Hills
Helping Our Residents Stay Active in Their Faith
Rolling Hills is fortunate to have a large group of clergy and lay people to minister to our residents through personal visits, church services, and Bible studies. Church services are offered both on-site at Rolling Hills and at off-site churches.
Worship Services and Bible Study Opportunities
Every Thursday morning at 10:00, members from Monroe County Catholic Churches volunteer to assist the residents to and from Sparta’s St. Patrick’s Church’s Catholic Mass and Communion services.
On the fourth Wednesday of each month, members of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Sparta assist with bringing residents to and from their 10:30am service with Communion. After each service, the members host a fellowship time with coffee and cookies for residents and visitors.
On the first Wednesday of each month, Trinity Lutheran ELCA, offers a communion service in the chapel at Rolling Hills. The Chapel is located on the ground floor and is complete with an altar, pulpit, electric piano, and a sound system that aids in hearing for our residents along with large print songbooks.
Volunteers conduct Bible Study on Monday afternoons at 3:45 in our activity lounge. This Bible Study is an Ecumenical Bible study and is open to all of the residents to attend.
Remembering Loved Ones
Every quarter, a memorial service is held in memory of loved ones who have passed away. Rolling Hills’ caring pastors help to lead these special services. During the service, the names of the departed are read and families and friends are invited to share a special memory. In addition to scripture and music during the service, the service leader shares words of comfort and inspiration for our residents and their family and friends. Those attending are welcome to enjoy fellowship at church together after the service.
“I enjoy seeing people get excited when they see me and my dog Keota. I enjoy brightening everyone’s day and the bonds and friendships we’ve grown. We are treated with the upmost kindness and respect, and are always greeted with cheerful staff. I am thanked each and every time I come to do pet therapy by all staff and many residents also say thanks. I always feel appreciated.”
