Senior Adult Ministry
Directors: Jim & Kathy Crawford
The “Joyous Seniors” serves ages 55 and up. Activities foster friendship, loyalty, entertainment, outreach, caring and Christian devotion. Several area churches participate and everyone is welcome.
Joyous Senior Fellowship – Third Friday of each Month at 11:45 AM, except months of June and July.
During this time the senior saints enjoy each other’s company, host speakers, plan yearly trips, and decide which missions to financially and prayerfully support. The fellowship is a covered dish luncheon.
Seniors in Ministry
Our Joyous Seniors host a CD ministry, which Sunday morning service recordings are taken to shut-ins within the week. This ministry allows our shut-ins to experience true worship with our pastor each week. Tape players are available for use on an as needed basis. There is also a water ministry which takes water to local motel during Thanksgiving and Masters Week.
Seniors on the Go
Several trips are arranged each year, which may be one-day tours such as the Apple Barn in Walhalla, SC, the Martha Franks Retirement Center and a play in Abbeville, SC. Extended trips, such as retreats and conferences, are planned every spring and fall, as well. Past trips have included conferences to The Cove in Ashville, NC, Phil Waldrep’s Celebrators in Sevierville & Pigeon Forge, TN, Charleston & West Virginia retreats. These trips allow a wonderful time of fellowship one with another.
