Senior Adult




55+ NEWS


We have a very active senior adult ministry. The seniors meet on the first Wednesday of each month for a catered meal (cost $5) and a program. Program guests range from musical talent to informative talks geared for seniors. The fellowship is held in the Fellowship Hall at 11:30 a.m. Guests are welcome.


Both day and overnight trips are scheduled throughout the year. Check in to see what is scheduled.

A group meets each Thursday at 1:00 pm in the Fellowship Hall for a friendly (?) game of 42.

From One Senior to Another

55+ MEETING:  Our special guest on Wednesday, March 4th, is Teresa Richenberger, founder of Rahab's Retreat in Kilgore.  Teresa will share a brief testimony about her journey with Christ and then she will bring us up to date on the progress of Rahab's Retreat, a ministry serving victims of sex trafficking and women in the sex industry. 

HOME IMPROVEMENT WEEKEND:
On April 18-19, we will have an action-packed weekend for every age-group in our church family.  Our guest leaders, Jeff & Debbie McElroy will lead in worship and fun sessions aimed at reviving and dedicating our commitment to developing healthy family relationships.  As senior
adults, we are asked to render child-care during the young families events on Saturday night.  Then, on Sunday morning, following lunch, Jeff & Debbie will lead us in a time of discovering how we can make a difference in the lives of our grandchildren.  I guarantee you it will be a time of inspiration, information and a time to laugh.  BRING A FRIEND!

WOW! 
What a great time of fun and fellowship we had this past Friday night at Bodacious Barbeque.  I witnessed almost 60+ seniors eating more than they should and talking and laughing beyond description.  Our next outing is on Friday night, March 13th.  I will let you know ASAP where we're meeting to eat. 

IT IS NOT TOO LATE TO SIGN UP FOR A MINISTRY TEAM!

I WANT TO ENCOURAGE YOU
to ask for God's help in developing a "habit of inviting people" to be a part of your spiritual journey in life.  Sometimes we refer to this as a consciousness of the "divine appointments" in our lives.  I believe every person we encounter every day has the possibility of being a divine appointment.  We just need to be aware of God's leadership on this matter.  One way to put this into practice is to "BRING A FRIEND" with you to our next 55+ Ministry event. 

SCRIPTURE OF THE WEEK:
"A man had gone to Jerusalem to worship, and on his way home was sitting in his chariot reading the book of Isaiah the prophet.  The Spirit told Philip, 'Go to that chariot and stay near it'... then Philip ran up to the chariot." (Read all of Acts 8:26-39)
