55+ adults

We encourage our 55+ adults to live significant lives, marked by joyfulness and love for Jesus. You won't find them rocking on front porches; they're out serving in our meal delivery ministry, singing in the JoySingers choir, serving on mission trips both locally and globally, volunteering in our church and loving one another. 

 
 

O God, from my youth you have taught me, and I still proclaim your wondrous deeds. So even to old age and gray hairs, O God, do not forsake me, until I proclaim your might to another generation, your power to all those to come.

Psalm 71:17-18
