What Makes Quarryville Presbyterian Unique
For over 70 years, Christ-centered living has been our hallmark at Quarryville. We are a community alive with rich cultural activity, exciting programming for physical and spiritual wellness, and ample opportunities to use your God-given gifts. Although you may retire from a career, you never retire from a calling to serve the Lord. Our desire is to provide a Christ-centered retirement experience that encompasses Wellness for the Glory of God through six dimensions of wellness as described by author John Dunlop, MD.
Quarryville offers abundant opportunities to develop these six dimensions of wellness. Our community is filled with people who share your interests and seek new friends to join in the fun. This spirit allows you to “Retire the Ordinary and Live the Extraordinary.” Below are the six dimensions of wellness and some of the opportunities available for each:
Physical: Physical wellness is the ability to maintain a healthy quality of life so you can get through daily activities without undue fatigue or stress. Physical health is a blessing that we should use to advance God’s eternal kingdom; it is maintained through physical activity, exercise, and healthy eating habits.
Opportunities: Land and aquatic classes, outdoor sport court, fishing at our pond, indoor walking track, swimming, personal training, wellness seminars, game room and arcade, a network of walking paths, and physical, occupational and water therapies.
Emotional: Emotional wellness is the ability to understand ourselves and deal with life’s challenges. Acknowledging and sharing feelings of anger, fear, sadness and stress, as well as hope, love, joy and happiness in a productive manner contribute to emotional wellness. Recognizing God’s sovereignty and depending on His spirit will help us control how we react to challenges.
Opportunities: Chapel, prayer meetings, Bible studies, counseling, choir, hymn sings, craft classes, shopping and other outings, volunteering, gardening, woodshop, fine arts and more.
Intellectual: Intellectual wellness is the ability to open our minds to new ideas and experiences that can be applied to personal decisions, group interaction and community betterment. Having a healthy brain allows us to expand our knowledge and skills and share our gifts with others.
Opportunities: A variety of spiritual education offerings, book club, poetry group, trivia, educational seminars, resident-led interest groups, guest speakers, bookmobile, on-campus libraries and newspapers and magazines.
Social: Social wellness is the ability to relate to and connect with other people in our world. God intended us to be in relationship with Him and with others. Life is richer and our wellness is enhanced if we are purposeful in our relationships.
Opportunities: Chapel, prayer meetings, Bible classes, volunteering, dining out and other trips, dancing classes, land and aquatic exercise classes, outdoor sport court, paved walking paths, crafts class, fine arts programs, resident-led interest groups, woodshop, choir, game room and arcade.
Spiritual: Spiritual wellness is life in which the heart is right with God and great joy is centered in pleasing Him and enjoying His presence. Living “to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever” is a firm foundation on which to build spiritual wellness.
Opportunities: Bible adventure mentoring program, Bible studies, guest lecturers and movies, prayer meetings, hymn sings, prayer and more.
Financial: Financial wellness is to embrace that God owns everything and we are his money managers. How we handle our finances is crucial for staying well. If we treasure God above all else and trust Him to meet our needs, we will find true contentment.
Opportunities: Community resources such as medical assistance counseling, on-site banking, Medicare and insurance billing. There are a variety of giving opportunities through special funds for pastors, missionaries, and residents who can no longer afford care, facility renovation, building maintenance, memorializing a loved one and employee appreciation.
