December is always a fun time at Concordia, with the decorations, the Advent services, the gift-giving parties from our Adopt-A-Resident program and so much more. And next week we kick it into high gear with a few events and activities. As usual, we would love it if you could join us, as both events are free and open to the public! :)
Concordia Lutheran Ministries will host its first ever live nativity scene on Sunday, Dec. 15 from 4 to 6 p.m. in front of the Haven II building at 148 Marwood Rd.
The scene will feature people from throughout the Concordia family, both staff and residents, and live animals. Live Christmas music, hot beverages and refreshments will be provided indoors as well as a gift for the first 200 children 12 and under. This will be a "walk-through" nativity, so guests are encouraged to dress warmly. Performances will be held every half hour.
Parking will be available at entrances 5 and 6 on Marwood Rd. For more information, call 724-352-1571, ext. 8268.
Concordia of the South Hills (CSH) will host a holiday bazaar featuring a variety of vendors, crafts, a basket auction and bake sale in the independent living social room on Tuesday, Dec. 10 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Selections include knitted items, jewelry, purses, ornaments and a returning favorite the Holiday Bargain table. Valet parking will be available.
All proceeds benefit the CSH Caring Fund to provide benevolent care to those we serve and assists in providing quality-of-life improvements and activities for our residents.
For more information or directions, call Concordia of the South Hills at 412-278-1300.
For many seniors, one major reason for considering a move to a senior care community is to be around others who have similar interests and make a new network of friends. All of Concordia's personal care and retirement living locations offer a full schedule of activities for our residents to enjoy, if they choose to do so. For more information on any Concordia events, call Concordia Public Relations at 724-352-1571, ext. 8266 or e-mail us here.
