Senior Adult Ministry

, Senior Adult Director
Mission Statement:​ We seek to meet the spiritual, physical, and social needs of our retired and senior adults.  We keep faith with the Churh’s mission statement of Christ’s Church; that purpose is evangelism, decipleship, proclamation, and pursuit of excellence in all things.​  The core values of the Senior Adult Ministry are as follows;
Fellowship: Sharing abilities with others for the cause of Christ.
Encouragement: Reinforcing one another in need.

Joy Club Luncheon Guest Speakers

Each month that the Joy Club meets for lunch (April-October) a guest speaker from around the area to speak on topics of interest to seniors and the church.  Check the church bulletin for details.

Senior Adult Trips 

Group outings to a different venue each month that Joy Club is in session.  These usually involve travel (provided by the church), attendance to the event, a meal out, and travel back to the church.  The steering committee works to develop the schedule and make the arrangements.  Signup sheets are posted next to the first floor elevator near the cafeteria and reminders placed in the bulletin the week of the event.  It’s a great time of Christian fellowship.
