Senior Ministries

sat of service kitchen girlsSenior Ministries is being developed  to be a vibrant ministry…

embracing the premise that purposeful activities, service to others, and Christian fellowship

is a must-do for people in all age groups.


This church has a very strong visitation ministry. We send volunteers to the hospital  every day of the week and do home visits by request. Our visitation ministry is through  the Inreach Team, which also organizes rides for seniors in the church who can’t get to church and generally tries to meet the needs that surface within the congregation. If you  are interested in being a part of this ministry, or have a need they might be able to fill,  please contact the church office and leave a message for Gary (visitation).
