“They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green, proclaiming, “The LORD is upright; he is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in him.” Psalm 92:14-15
Our Seniors Ministry plays a vital role in helping older adults continue reaching their spiritual goals. In addition, older adults can serve as teachers and mentors for the spiritual well-being of others. For older adults, spiritual growth is made available through worship, Bible study, and prayer.
In a fast-paced and changing society, older adults need opportunities to continue the life-long process of learning and growing. The church plays a vital role in helping older adults stay strong in faith. Also, the church provides support in dealing with transitions, separation from loved ones, and changes in society.
Our Senior Ministry team works to plan a holistic program to meet the needs of seniors. The ministry is theologically based, recognizing that each individual is created by God and is worthy of dignity, usefulness, and satisfaction through service to others.
Morning Star’s Seniors Ministry is designed for persons 55 years and older. It is founded on a basic teaching of the Bible, the worth of each individual. Jesus said, “I am come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly” (John 10:10). This abundant living is for all of life. In harmony with this teaching, we assess the essential needs of senior adults and present a balanced program to meet them.
We have developed meetings relevant to the specific needs and concerns of older adults including:
- community issues
- current affairs
- legal issues
- medical concerns
- physical and mental fitness
All people, young and old, need each other very much. As a result of better health care, nutrition, job safety, physical fitness, and medical technology, more people are living longer than ever before. As a result, Morning Star is enjoying the blessing of increasing numbers of seniors.
Our activities are planned to meet specific needs for senior adults. We invite you to enrich your life by joining this growing, dynamic, fun-loving group of seniors at our church.
