Worship Opportunities


The chapel ministry is an important element of our positive, Christian atmosphere at Caliente Springs Resort. Christians from every denomination gather with spirit-seeking peers to worship together on Sundays, fellowship in small groups, and study the Bible during the week. Whatever your spiritual tradition, we welcome you to experience Caliente’s community of faith. Join us every Sunday for our 9 am service with traditional choir music, or attend the winter (January through March) 10:30 am service, with a more contemporary flair. Everyone meets for coffee hour at the Rudolph Room between 10:00 and 10:30 am, keeping the two services connected.

Chaplains Ken Ratcliffe and Jennie Best are available to advise and support all residents and visitors during the week. Many residents find a special dose of community participating in the choir, which meets weekly, or visiting some of the local missions that the chapel program supports. Whether you get involved with volunteer service, singing or just Sunday mornings, we’re here for you.
