Seniors

Welcome!

Senior, mature, seasoned, elderly, and old—words that are used to describe those who have reached a life stage where many of us are transitioning from previous work and routines to finding new purpose as we age. 

Our Senior Ministries help us stay connected with each other and to our Lord and Savior. We serve others, give to people in need, grow intellectually, welcome new friends into the Messiah family, and enjoy fun gatherings with our fellow believers.
