Older Adult Ministries
One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it is such a nice change from being young. (Be honest – being young wasn’t always great either.)
Every Thursday–Join us for a meal at 11:30 in the Fellowship Hall. A main dish is provided. You are invited to bring a side dish, but it is not necessary. There is always plenty of food. We often comment—it is the best meal of the week. (Come as early as 10:30 or 11:00 for coffee and fellowship. Or come for the Study Group starting at approximately 12:15.) Park at or near the north side of the church, enter through the north door. Fellowship Hall is the double doors to the right.
Access in our building–There is a wheelchair ramp on the west side of the part of the church that extends to the west sidewalk which provides entrance into the Sanctuary. On the north side of the building there are automatic doors, handicap restroom (on the right, in FellowshipHall), and a short stair-elevator leading to the sanctuary. (The sanctuary has an area with wide spacing to accommodate wheelchairs and walkers.)
The bookshelves in Fellowship Hall hold a wide variety of reading material. Some of the topic ranges are spiritual growth, Presbyterian history, caregiving, and others.
We must keep in touch to nurture, inspire and guide those with less age and faith experience, while supporting our members no longer able to worship with us.
Some Online Resources for Older Adults:
Presbyterian Church (USA)/ Older Adult is an essential part of our denomination’s broader ministry. It holds a vast amount of information on issues of aging.
AARP.org A very valuable web site for information on aging.
“Old age is not a punishment but a divine gift. Your life experiences have enriched you beyond measure.” – Aging Faithfully: 28 Days of Prayer, by Missy Buchanan
|The relationship with God–the willingness to serve God and to care for others–was never reserved for a particular age group. In the Old and New Testaments, God calls young and old to faithfulness and service.|
