Seniors
Senior Ministry is a support ministry for senior members of our congregation, offering friendship, support, and companionship.
 
Volunteers visit seniors and provide transportation to and from medical appointments, church services and programs. Senior Ministry also supports the “Helping Hands” program. A ministry where volunteers offer a helping hand to seniors for small jobs around their house, from changing light bulbs, to trimming tree limbs, to fixing dipping faucets.
 
Senior Ministry hosts a monthly luncheon, “Spuds, Salads, and Smiles” with exciting speakers and fellowship, on the second Wednesday of the each month at 11:30 in Prichard Hall.
