Sunday Service

sunday service at memory care Aravilla Clearwater

This month here at Aravilla Clearwater we will be introducing a new Sunday Service. We will start off with every other Sunday in July and gradually increase to every Sunday. We will be gathering in the Promenade at 3pm to hear the gospel. It’s amazing how many residents will remember every single word of their favorite hymn. Because we have music at 10:30am on Sundays, our Service will be in the afternoons with snacks and drinks provided to all of our residents and visitors.  Our Service will be led by Pastor Walter from Calvary Church. We also plan to have the Service start with music in the near future. Anyone who is interested in joining is encouraged and welcome! *Please “like” our Aravilla Clearwater Facebook page to keep up with our Aravilla Family. You may even find unique photos of your loved ones!
