Senior Adult Ministry

Larry Branch, 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.
Compassion: Support of the needy.  We are care givers, not just care receivers.
