About Senior Ministry

The ability to recreate gives people the chance to re-create themselves at this stage of their lives. Laughter, fun, humor, and play are all vital ingredients for our well-being as we get older.

"Is not wisdom found among the aged?
    Does not long life bring understanding?" - Job 12:12
"Gray hair is a crown of splendor;
    it is attained in the way of righteousness." - Proverbs 16:31
