Take the Church to Riverside Rehab

Location: Riverside Rehab in North Charleston
Time:  1:45pm – 3:00pm

Residents at Riverside are long term patients with significant health issues. Although they would love to attend their home churches, they are simply too sick to do so. This project takes the church to them. We’ll sing the classic hymns together, pray and offer a message similar to that of a traditional church. You’ll assist with passing out song sheets, assist residents with difficulty in turning song sheet pages, visit one on one with residents, and simply spend time together just as we do at Coastal. This is a great opportunity to serve and to love on people who could certainly use the extra love and encouragement.
