Nursing Home Worship Leaders
Twice a month on Sundays and the first Wednesday of the month, members of St. Luke’s lead a short worship service at the Life Care Center in Scituate. Also on the last Thursday of the month, Rev. Grant and others go to an Adult Day Care Center to have a Bible Study and lead singing.
