Adults 60 Plus
So teach us to number our days, that we may present to you a heart of wisdom. Psalm 90:12
There’s never a dull moment in our Adults 60 Plus Ministry. That’s because there is no shortage of opportunities to actively engage in ministry. Through classes, outings, and serving within the church and throughout the community, our adults 60 and older are deepening their spiritual maturity and sharing their wisdom with younger generations.
