Senior Adult Ministries

Vision Statement

We believe God is calling us to take his love in concrete ways to senior adults in our churches and our communities. This will be accomplished through regular planned programs and activities, the goals of which are: spiritual growth, community building, health/wellness and recreation.

Senior Adult Ministry is a fairly new ministry for the district. The ministry is still under construction and how it goes and how it grows depends on you folks. Your input is needed as far as what programming and activities you would like. If you have knowledge or talent to share, you are encouraged to do so. Seniors are a valuable but often untapped resource. Do not lose the chance to share the wealth of information, experience and faith you have with others.
