Disciples Benevolent Services has begun offering chaplain services to the Ramsey Village senior living community in Des Moines, Iowa. Linda M. Lighthall, an ordained Disciples minister has been appointed to serve the chaplaincy needs of the Ramsey Village residents and those of senior residents in the Des Moines area. The Disciples Benevolent Services Chaplaincy Care program was established to aid senior adults who live in centers that do not provide chaplaincy services.
Lighthall’s "previous experience in this position and her genuine love and compassion for people, especially older adults, makes her well-suited to meet the needs of those persons she will be serving. She will truly be a blessing to all of us," said Donald B. Hiscox, associate regional minister of the Christian Church in the Upper Midwest. DBS chaplaincy services are provided at no cost to those who benefit from them. For more, see: www.disciples.org/default.aspx?tabid=58&itemid=52
