SENIOR ADULT MINISTRY
We call our Senior Adult Ministry “Pacesetters”, and that name reminds us that we have a leadership/mentoring responsibility. Our group is composed of adults age 55 and above.
We believe there is a great need for the Senior Adult Ministry. Not only are people living longer, but they are also enjoying living longer. Today’s seniors realize that retirement doesn’t necessarily mean the “rocking chair.” Modern seniors want to live out their total stewardship privilege/responsibility and be valuable members of their church and community.
Our group is very active and enjoys many opportunities to GATHER and fellowship. A fellowship meeting takes place on the second Saturday of each month with the sharing of a potluck meal and enjoyment of some type of entertainment. We commonly have a group excursion each month. It may just be to a local restaurant; it may be a 10-day cruise. Whatever it is, the excursion is planned to be interesting and enjoyable. There are also many other opportunities to fellowship each month, so we encourage you to take time to look at our upcoming activities in our newsletter and come to as many as you'd like!
We also provide opportunities to help senior adults GROW in service and Christlikeness. We especially believe that Sunday School is very helpful to everyone. Discipleship classes and service opportunities are also available from time to time.
Finally, you will find us emphasizing GOING for the Lord as we support evangelism and missions involvement.
We want everyone to know that the life of everyone matters. So come to Jesus and come be a part of our Parkside family. Let’s GATHER, GROW and GO together.

By 2050, estimates say that the state’s senior population will increase to approximately 17.4%, which is well below the 20% predicted nationwide. However, with 5.9 million seniors projected to live in Texas by 2030, senior living facilities will undoubtedly become an increasingly attractive option for those seeking senior care.
Even with more affordable options for senior living, many seniors may struggle to pay for needed care. Fortunately, a variety of programs exist that may reduce these expenses. This guide offers information about the cost of senior living in Texas, possible financing options, and agencies and programs in the state that offer support for seniors.
Our Senior Adult ministry has several outreach programs. Our members use them to spread the Name of the Lord amongst our community in a real, tangible way.
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.
Bibles for Babies
This ministry visits new parents in the church family and delivers a babies first bible to the family. This helps us make connections with new families we may not have known before!
