"But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; the will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not faint." – Isaiah 40:31
The Senior Adult ministry exists to provide Christ-centered activity addressing the spiritual, educational and social needs of mature adults. We use the name "Great Adventures" to identify events for mature adults, including luncheon programs, day trips, classes and forums on relevant subjects, service projects and our annual weeklong trip.
Great Adventures Luncheons
Luncheon programs are held the second Tuesday of each month. They are primarily designed as an outreach ministry. They include special speakers, music groups, and entertaining programs, topped off with a tasty lunch.
Great Adventures Day Trips
These once a month opportunities are planned for seniors to extend their fellowship within our community. It's always a popular activity.
Great Adventures Fall Trip
Every fall we plan a weeklong trip to see and enjoy new and exciting parts of the country. These trips are usually 4-6 nights and have included journeys to locations such as New England in Autumn, Branson, MO, Colorado Springs, Lancaster County, PA, New York City, Chicago, Savanah and Cape Cod with Martha's Vineyard.
Great Adventures Newsletter
We provide a printed monthly publication designed to keep our mature adults informed of YAH events and other items of interest to mature adults. Electronic versions of past newletters are available on the Great Adventures Blog.
Visit the Great Adventures BLOG
The Great Adventures Blog has been created to provide additional photos and information of timely interest to our people. This electronic medium is used to supplement the Newsletter and add Internet Links that may be useful to our Great Adventurers.
Personal Caring Ministry
We take seriously our responsibility to reach out to those who are unable to attend regularly scheduled church programs due to physical health or limitations. Volunteer caregivers from within the congregation reach out to these dear saints and provide encouragement to each one. We also call on our people in the hospitals.
