With the reality of adults often living far from their aging parents, Preston Hollow Presbyterian Church has taken a proactive and caring approach to meet the ongoing needs of our members and their families. Dee Wadsworth, as our Church Gerontologist, leads us in an expanded and dynamic ministry that is not age specific but is offered to anyone who wishes to know more about the aging processing.

A team of church members devote about 2-3 hours per month, including travel time, to visit our members who reside nearby in assisted living and long-term care facilities (LTCF). This team of dedicated volunteers brings the presence of PHPC to those who cannot attend worship services. The LTCF team rotates, stopping by to see about 3-5 persons at a different facility each month. Visits can be made any day of the week at the visitor’s pace. If you would like to join our LTCF team or explore this ministry opportunity, contact Dee Wadsworth firstname.lastname@example.org or 214-368-6348 ext. 118.

Nothing is more important to the life of our church family than a caring ministry to those who are passing through “the valley of the shadow” seeking God’s presence and comfort in times of grief and mourning. We believe that God holds our loved ones in strong and everlasting arms, and that we who live on can know the shelter and strength of the Good Shepherd. Our pastors, staff, and members stand ready to be there with and for you as you seek the assurance that in life or death, we belong to God. Such ministry is our highest calling and greatest privilege. For information about planning or preplanning a memorial service, please contact the church office at (214) 368-6348.
