Senior Ministry seeks to foster an environment in which adults in mid- to late life feel 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

I.C.E. (In Case of Emergency) Forms
Recent events in our church have again brought home the need to maintain emergency contact information for our members. We are most concerned with members who live by themselves, but would like this for everyone. “In Case of Emergency” forms may be obtained at the Welcome Center desk. Please pick up a form, complete it, and turn it in to the Welcome Desk.
