Welcome to Centenary's Senior Ministry
BY - WITH - FOR Senior Adults!
We have a variety of activities that are aimed at the senior adults in our church and community. Be sure to view the Seniors' calendar of events!
Who is a Senior Adult?
AARP says when you have reached your 50th birthday you are a Senior Adult. You decide for yourself if you are a Senior Adult.
The Lunch Bunch
The first Wednesday of each month our Senior Adults go out to eat at different restaurants for lunch at 11:30am. Departure time will vary depending on the restaurant location. For information call Martha Sanderson at 651-5415.
Our Helping Hands Ministry
This ministry is for those in our congregation who are living in their own home and have minor jobs around the home that they can no longer handle. Those in need of a helping hand can call Harlan & Ruffena Holladay, 339-2086, and one or more handy persons will arrive at your home to fix that drippy faucet, clean that gutter or help with whatever it is that you need.
If the project is too big for Helping Hands Ministry to handle, we will suggest someone you can hire to take care of your need.
Those who need a ride to the traditional worship service on Sunday morning, to various meetings at our church, to a doctor's appointment or other places may call the Sandersons at 651-5415. We can always use volunteers to provide this highly appreciated service. If you are able to help, call the Sandersons.
The Senior Adult Coordinators, Jim & Martha Sanderson, make regular visits to the senior adults at Centenary. The Sandersons visit members on a regular basis.
We have four classes that are made up in part or in full by Senior Adults. Our teachers are educated community members, business leaders, current or former professors who lead and encourage insightful discussion.
Volunteer Opportunities for Senior Adults
There are many ways to help at Centenary. We need Senior Adults who will volunteer to answer the telephone at church for 2 to 3 hours; help fold the newsletter; visit a homebound person monthly; help other Senior Adults in the Helping Hands and Transportation Ministries. Remember that it takes a village to operate a healthy church and there are ways for anyone to help! If you have spare time and would like to volunteer, please call Jim and/or Martha Sanderson at 651-5415.
There are many ways to enrich your faith at Centenary, including a knitting group that will even teach you how to knit, if need be. Explore the website and you may find something of interest.
