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

it is attained in the way of righteousness." - Proverbs 16:31
