About the Village
The Assemblies of God founded Maranatha Village in 1973 to provide a unique retirement community in Springfield, Missouri.
Here you can have Christian fellowship with other people who have similar faith beliefs while living your best life in your golden years. Join us for the most exciting and relaxing time of your life!
Volunteers Who Make a Difference
Maranatha Village thrives on the work of dedicated volunteers. Hundreds of good people, including some of our independent living residents, volunteer to make our campus life fun and rewarding!
Volunteer opportunities run the gamut:
- Singing in the Chapel choir
- Maranatha Mall, our annual yard sale
- Sewing and quilting
- Help with activities
- Play a musical instrument before evening meals
- Many more, the sky’s the limit!
Whatever your passion is, we can use your help to brighten our campus!
Volunteers make all the difference at Maranatha Village. We offer daily activities for assisted living residents. Our volunteer corps keeps the grounds tidy throughout the year, helps the staff run activities, and assists worship leaders in the chapel during services. If you have a special gift and want to help, talk to us about volunteer opportunities.
Our 100-acre campus is like a miniature nature preserve. Our small lake harbors fish. Feel free to sit on our fishing pier so you can spend your day trying to catch the “big” one. Walking trails wind through trees and near creeks. Daily walks in nature can improve your health and well-being. On any given day, you could see deer (even small fawns), turkeys, geese, and our pair of swans. Along the way, say hi to your neighbors! You can invite your family and friends over for a stroll on the grounds to create new memories with your loved ones!
It takes a village. Here at Maranatha Village, we want you to develop long-lasting friendships and relationships that bring joy to your life. Eat noon meals with your neighbors, celebrate birthdays and milestones, and become friends as you enjoy this season of life.
Activities are available for all residents. We celebrate birthdays and anniversaries. Our residents head outside for gardening and walking or stay inside for crafts and painting. Spirit days may include lake vacations, jungles, pets, fishing, penguins, summer camp, veteran recognition, and holidays. We never have dull moments here!
