Providing a source of purpose, hope, healing and comfort to our residents and their families.
As a resident of Richfield, Chaplaincy Services are available to you by your personal clergy, or if you choose, by Richfield’s on-site chaplain, Reverend Gary Kingery.
You are invited to watch our Sunday services on channel 62 beginning at 10 am on Sunday mornings. Sunday service (virtual for now) will be in the Regency Room in Ridgecrest until the new Chapel is complete in the Town Center. Residents are also welcome to attend virtual weekly bible studies and Stephen ministry. Chaplain Gary is here to discuss your interests and needs. Email or call him at 540.354.8164.
Chaplain Gary has been in pastoral ministry since 1986, serving in churches in the Greater Roanoke area. Chaplain Gary was licensed to the ministry by Cave Spring Baptist Church in Roanoke, and ordained to the ministry by Mountain View Baptist Church in Catawba, Virginia. Chaplain Gary has a Bachelor of Theology Degree and an Associate Degree in Business Administration/Management and has served as the spiritual leader of the Richfield Living campus since 2014.
Our chaplaincy program seeks to help in supporting local ministry and to encourage the spiritual life of each resident, regardless of his or her religious affiliation or beliefs. Chaplain Gary is actively involved in supporting residents and patients through difficult times. The role of the Chaplain is to provide support including questions of purpose, meaning, hope and faith. Our chaplaincy is not a counseling or mental health service. Referrals to medical professionals are made when necessary and appropriate.
The services of our Chaplain are free of charge and include:
- Pastoral visits
- Emotional and spiritual support in times of illness, crisis or loss
- Funerals, memorial services and celebrations of life for patients and residents without faith support
- Leading Bible studies and Sunday worship services
Donations in recognition of Chaplaincy services are welcome at any time.
All donations will be deposited into our Chapel Fund to assist with offsetting the operating expenses of the Chaplaincy program. Richfield Living is a 501(c)3 charitable organization; therefore, your gift is tax deductible within IRS guidelines.
