Foothills Retirement Community has a part-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 introduce available services and help them adjust to their community. They also visit residents and staff members who are hospitalized. The Chaplain is available for spiritual counseling, pastoral care, and grief counseling for residents, residents’ 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.
Joseph Gaston, our Chaplain has been part of the Foothills community since 2016. Joseph is not only engaged with the residents on a daily basis in his chaplaincy, he plays an integral part in serving as chaplain to the team at Foothills. Joseph loves to participate in the life enriching activities of the community as well! You can hear his laughter from anywhere in the building.
"To be a Chaplain at this community is inspiring, spending time with the residents affects how I envision my retirement. I feel called to serve in this capacity."
