Jesus Loves You 

A small group of volunteers (2-6) visit American House once a month. Generally we go on the second Friday of the month at 10:00 am for about an hour. Our mission is to remind our friends that God is with them each and every day, so we do crafts, sing songs, play games, pray together and have a great time. We are ever mindful that most of our friends will not remember us from month to month which makes it all the more important for us to remember them with a smile, handshake, pat on the shoulder, or listening ear. 

For more information contact the church office
(708) 444-8560 or at faith@faithumcop.org.
