Spiritual Therapy

On a noncompulsory basis, Excelsior offers a variety of religious activities and spiritual counseling. Nondenominational Sunday services, as well as regular Bible Study and social meetings are coordinated by our Chaplains. “We view ourselves as planting seeds,” says Ron Bard, who with his wife Gail has touched thousands of lives leading Excelsior’s spiritual program. These dedicated Chaplains communicate understanding, love, responsibility, patience and forgiveness. Participation in this program is on a strictly voluntary basis, including a weekly Bible study class, a Sunday worship service, one-on-one spiritual counseling and a weekly newsletter, The Good News Press.

Additionally, the Bards will arrange for girls to worship or connect with leaders or counselors of other religions.
