St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in North Little Rock, in association with four other area churches, hosts a weekly respite care center for older adults. Every Thursday, several dozen clients and volunteers gather at St. Luke’s for a devotional, food, entertainment, and most importantly fellowship.
This past Thursday, Dec. 18, was their annual Christmas party, with more than 40 people in attendance. There were accordions, harmonicas, dancing, clapping, laughing. And a group sing-along of “Jingle Bells.”
St. Luke’s Respite Care Center is a wonderful ministry for both the clients and the volunteers, many of whom have been involved with the program for years. For more information about the respite care center or to get involved, email the office at St. Luke’s or call 501-753-4281.
