Spiritual Life

Life at Wichita Presbyterian Manor affords residents numerous opportunities to worship and practice their faith. Chaplain Greg Schmidt is the campus chaplain.

Services are offered weekly in our non-denominational chapel on Sunday mornings and Wednesday afternoons. The worship folder reads, "We gather for worship each Sunday morning because in our gathering, we open our lives to experience God's presence, peace, comfort and direction. The word of the Lord and the fellowship of his saints provides both blessing and promise to those who follow after Jesus Christ."

Holy communion is offered monthly, and residents also may request to receive communion in their rooms. Special services and activities are offered throughout the year, including a Christmas Carol sing, Lenten Bible study, Veteran's Day services, weekly Rosary prayer service, Advent services and studies and more.

Worship however they choose

In addition to communal opportunities to practice their faith, residents also may request one-on-one spiritual consultations or prayer, and residents may ask the activity director to have daily devotions read to them in their rooms.

Chaplain Greg Schmidt also shares prayer with the staff each weekday and takes the opportunity to pray with residents at meal times in different dining rooms throughout the campus.

A unique offering at the Wichita Presbyterian Manor campus is the Bedside Memorial. Chaplain Greg offers prayers with the care staff and family members present at the time of passing and leads the singing of "Amazing Grace" as the deceased makes his or her final journey down the hallway.

Wichita Presbyterian Manor is open to residents of many faiths and backgrounds. Chaplain Greg welcomes volunteers from the greater community in to lead Bible studies, devotions and services, providing opportunities for many different faith communities to share with residents.
