Senior Adult Ministry
“We are called to create opportunities for all senior adults and caregivers to become devoted followers of Christ, with our congregation and community.”
Our ministry is to, with, for, and by seniors in our congregation and community.
Our leadership team of about fifteen people meets the first Friday of each month at 10:00 a.m. in the Bethlehem Room to celebrate past ministries, plan current ones and dream future ministries.
You are welcome to be part of this growing ministry. For more information contact Pastor Steve.
We work with four groups of people: active seniors; transitional seniors; frail seniors; and caregivers.
