Dr. Owens stopped by to update us on what’s happening with Covid-19. 7/17/2021. We are thankful for his guidance.
One of the best amenities that our residents have is BancFirst. For those that no longer drive, the bank branch still allows for Independence. And for those that do drive, it’s such a convenience to be able to do their banking at “home!” Not to mention, the attention and friendship that our banker, Anita shares with everyone who walks in the door. We are so lucky. Thanks, BancFirst!
Let’s talk about the Brill Chapel here at Epworth Villa and Pastor Laura Glover. Simply put, the Brill Chapel is the spiritual center of Epworth Villa. Pastor Laura comes to Epworth from the Oklahoma Conference of the United Methodist Church. While she may belong to the Methodist Church, the services at Epworth are ecumenical and open to all faiths. Each Thursday, a Vespers service is held generally with a local clergy member. There is a choir, pianist, and organist to complete the traditional service. The services are broadcast on Epworth’s own closed-circuit TV channel (EVTV.) On Sunday mornings, Sunday School is held in the Brill Chapel, and a musical worship service on Sunday evenings.
Our Residents are so blessed that Kenneth and Evelyn Brill had a vision and created an action plan for the construction of the chapel. It was dedicated in November of 2002 and then received a slight renovation in 2016 with sound and lighting updates throughout the years. We are confident that the Brill Chapel will continue to serve our Residents well.
At Epworth Villa, we value Faith-Based Service. We respect all beliefs. We pray with each other and those we serve. We value diversity.
We invite you to come and visit Pastor Laura, the Brill Chapel and tour our entire campus. You are WELCOME at Epworth Villa!
Learning more about the additional services offered to Epworth Residents and the community:
Epworth at Home has always been here for us. Al and I have each had surgeries while living here at Epworth Villa. A registered nurse, physical therapist, and occupational therapist worked with Al here in our home. I have had two surgeries and needed help with bathing and housework. Epworth at Home provided health care nurses for me. All brought big smiles and friendly talk as well as doing their jobs efficiently. They also followed through and checked back with us to see if we needed more assistance. They provide all the home health services that we needed.
We know if we need help again, we can always count on Epworth at Home to send the appropriate professional to help us! -Al and Sonie Lieber
