Senior Ministry


SENIOR MINISTRY



Senior Ministry seeks to foster an environment in which adults in mid to late life feel really welcomed and fully engaged in the ministry of God’s kingdom.  Seniors’ experiences and wisdom are embraced as valuable resources. To this end, the following areas of ministry have been identified:

  • Spiritually enriching activities to strengthen the Faith journey
  • Educational opportunities to extend active engagement in all areas of life
  • Cross-generational events to bridge barriers which often divide God’s children
  • Missional events to serve as the hands and feet of Christ
