|PUMC’s Worship Without Walls spruces up Senior Center|
|Tuesday, May 7, 2013|
Mt. Juliet Senior Activity Center was one of the recipients of the annual “Worship Without Walls” community service project. Every year, members of the Providence United Methodist Church volunteer for various projects in the community.
Projects at the senior center included; mulching, weeding and planting herbs and flowers in the Senior Serenity Park, spring cleaning the center’s kitchen and art rooms, and organizing closets. Beautiful spring flowers were planted in pots at the entry ways and the restrooms received a fresh coat of paint.
The mission of the center is to provide a place for older adults aged 55 and over to gather for recreational, educational and social activities and to alleviate isolation and loneliness among the elderly.
The success of the senior center depends on support from volunteer groups like “Worship without Walls” to keep the building and grounds safe, clean and well maintained. “On behalf of the senior members, we send a huge thank you to all of the helping hands and caring hearts of Providence United Methodist Church,” says center director, Linda McClanahan.
