Clinton Presbyterian Community has a full-time chaplain to serve the spiritual needs of residents, staff, and family members. The Chaplain leads weekly worship services and provides Communion services, Bible studies, and other spiritual activities. The Chaplain works with residents, serving on the community’s Spiritual Life Committee to develop faith-based programs throughout the year. PCSC Chaplains have even been known to conduct weddings in our chapels.
As a church-affiliated organization, spiritual life is integral to PCSC’s traditions, mission, and values. Each resident is visited by the Chaplain during their first weeks to help with transition and introduce available services. They also visit residents and staff members who are hospitalized. The Chaplain is available for spiritual counseling, pastoral care, and grief counseling for residents, their families, and employees.
Opportunities for Worship
PCSC serves seniors of all faiths. Our Chaplains respect each individual’s religious views and assist with making connections with other spiritual leaders as requested by residents.
Jim Caprell, Chaplain, encompasses all phases of ministry to the residents and staff in all areas: pastoral care, Bible Study, worship, counseling, spiritual growth, worship, and more. During the height of COVID he served meals and delivered the mail to residents in their rooms, led ‘Singing in the Halls’, offered devotions remotely via the television, hosted Street Sip ‘n Socials at residents’ cottages, and filled in wherever he was needed. He says, “I count it all joy to minister to a community that’s built on compassion and love."
