More About this Class

          Sunday School at Magnolia Manor, a local assisted care facility, has been a special Trinity outreach for over 20 years. Established under the leadership of Ginny Jacquette , the program is led today by Gail Hamilton and Ardell Henry, who along with other Trinity volunteers including John Edwards and Richard Hollis , visit with residents and hold a class each Sunday morning. Jean Marshall coordinates volunteers to play the piano each week. Gail says, “We open with a prayer, ask for special prayer requests, sing hymns, and have a regular lesson. On the first Sunday of the month, we hold a Communion service. I think the most important thing is that Ardell and I visit each class member individually to talk about what is going on in their lives and what may be concerning them. The residents are so thankful and happy. I feel all this love. Truly, we receive more than we give.”
          In the early 1990s, Pastor Bill Mayton asked me to start a Sunday School Class at Magnolia Manor so, with several others, we began Sunday School and visiting the residents there, with lessons and music, and communion once a month. There were times when I asked, “Lord, is it time to stop,” but the Lord kept sending helpers so that ministry is flourishing today as it helps bring church and connection to the residents there. – Ginny Jacquette
