Torchbearers Senior Adults

A new year in the Senior Adult Ministry, known as the Torchbearers, is beginning. We would like to invite you to participate in the ministry programs. In this day of busy schedules with so many commitments vying for our time, you may think another commitment would stretch your time even more. However, the Ministry events are totally voluntary. With the effort and support of many seniors in the coming year, we look forward to another fruitful year of service, activities, and fellowship. We'd love to have you join us. The Ministry focuses on the approximately 300 church members 55 years of age and older. The Ministry is under the staff leadership of Pastor Aaron Rayburn with Pat Billings as the staff support.

The Senior Adult Ministry will encourage service outside the church, inside the church, and within the Ministry. Some of the service areas in which the seniors are encouraged to be involved are after school Good News Club; Senior Adult Choir and choir events; Women's Ministry; Men's Ministry; mission organizations; small prayer groups; Intercessory Prayer Ministry; Deacon body; church visitation in the hospitals, care facilities, and to homebounds; and teaching Sunday School and discipleship courses.

Opportunities for activities will include several local day trips and overnight trips to places of interest, as well as a senior retreat.

Opportunities for fellowship include the monthly meetings at 6:00 p.m. except as noted below generally on the third Monday night of each month. These meetings include a covered dish meal with entrée provided, a devotional, various types of outstanding entertainment, and fellowship around the table.
