Senior Adult Ministry

Our purpose

  • To deepen the understanding of the Christian faith and dedication of senior adults.
  • To utilize and develop the talents and spiritual insights of senior adults.
  • To encourage and develop a rich and meaningful fellowship in and through senior adults.
  • To help senior adults magnify and strengthen the church.
  • To help senior adults continue to assume their place of usefulness and leadership in the community.
  • By recognizing the above, every effort is made to channel and utilize the talents and energy of this group at this strategic time in their lives. The genius of a senior adult ministry is that it speaks to, utilizes the talents of, and therefore specifically reaches the senior adults in the church . . . and in the community. Senior adults lead in the planning in the working in sharing the fellowship in witnessing to the great life in Christ Jesus. Our senior adults are involved in all parts of our church.
