55+ Ministry

“Significant Living” is what we encourage our Adults 55+ to pursue in the “Best Half” of their lives. With adults living 30 to 40 years past their active employment days and in better health than ever before; it is a time for “ReFirement”; not retirement! No conversations about rocking on the front porch will be found here! At CHBC, we seek to encourage our Adults 55+ to use their gifts to pursue an Acts 1:8 lifestyle. We want to reach our Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and the world so that others may come to know HIM!

Whether it is serving in our Meal Delivery Ministry, Mission Trip Opportunities both near and far, Singing in the mission minded JoySingers Choir, Monthly Local Hands On Mission Projects, Volunteering at the church or other local Christian ministries; our 55+ family is busy making an impact in our world for Christ!

We have three different age group ministries in our Significant Living Family

  1. Cottage Hill “Catalysts” – This “New” ministry age group is known as the “Boomers”. Born from 1946-64 this group of adults for the most part are not retired, adjusting to the empty nest, taking care of aging parents, enjoying grandchildren and preparing for retirement. Our ministry for this group will include mostly week-end activities such as Friday night Fellowships and Overnight Getaways as well as targeted mission projects.
  2. Cottage Hill “Classics” – Rich with life’s experiences you are now retired and enjoying hobbies, traveling, and exploring what you can do of Significance for the Lord in the years ahead. Ministry to this group includes a full array of mission opportunities and fellowship opportunities during the week.
  3. Cottage Hill “CARE” Ministry – Whether you are a member who cannot attend church or a caregiver to those with physical or mental limitations, we love and value you here at CHBC. Our deacons and other members of our church seek to minister to these important and not forgotten member of our congregation.
