Ministry spreads message through music

Posted: Updated:

The saying goes that music soothes the soul and a group of men is using their music to bring joy to the elderly at area nursing homes.

God First Community Ministry uses soothing sounds of peaceful melodies. They are tunes that brighten the spirits of nursing home residents.

"It brings my heart joy because of the smiles that I see," says Henry Jones III.

The men spend two days a week entertaining those who may be lonely.

"A lot of elders, through certain situations and circumstances, are not able to have their family members come on a daily basis," he says.

These men become a second family to the residents by singing along with them to songs that boosts their faith.

"It's something that we felt compassionate about going out and giving people the word that can't get the word for themselves," says Dallas Baker.

The residents benefit from the lyrics of love and joy. Also benefiting are the men of God First Community Ministry who find happiness touching the lives of others.
