Because God is working among us senior adults, we want to know Christ and make Him known. If you are already participating in the activities of the Golden Years Ministry, we encourage you to stay the course. If you are not involved, I invite you to take part in the various fellowship and discipleship activities this group is offering. Come grow with us, as we help one another in our Christian journey, and as we seek to reach out to those who do not know Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord

 

Our Senior Adult Ministry involves Senior Adults ages 55+ in our church and community.  This group provides various opportunities for spiritual and social enrichment, such as Bible studies, trips, socials, and craft classes. 

The Golden Years Ministry meets on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday Morning of each month
