Senior Adults {50+}

 

There is a great need for the Senior Adult Ministry. Not only are people living longer, they are enjoying living longer. Today’s seniors realize that retirement doesn’t necessarily mean the “rocking chair.” Modern seniors want to remain useful, active, to continue learning and growing personally, and to be valuable members of their community and church.
The Senior Adult Ministry, for adults 50 years old and up, began at Parkside in 1996. Since that time, the foundational goals of that ministry have remained strong: To provide many opportunities for Senior Adults to be actively committed to and involved in worship, maturity, ministry, evangelism, missions, and fellowship.

The life of every Senior Adult has value. We want them to know that! This is what the Senior Adult Ministry at Parkside is all about.

 

 


Outreach

Projects: A committee plans projects to raise money for senior adult programs and events not covered in the church's budget.

Visitation: The Visitation Committee makes regular visits to those in hospitals, nursing homes, and homebound Parkside members. Sunday School curriculum, an Open Windows booklet, and a Mature Living magazine are delivered to all Sunday School members who are in the nursing homes or homebound. Bud vases, made from each Sunday's altar flowers, are delivered to the shut-ins weekly.

Benevolence: Members in nursing homes and homebound members are remembered with visits and special treats on holidays. Members receive visits and flowers on their 90th birthday.

Membership: The Membership Committee contacts and invites those ages 50 and above to join the Pacesetters Senior Adult Ministry.

Bibles for Babies: This ministry visits new parents in the church family and delivers a Bible storybook for the newborn.
