Senior adults are an important group of people in our congregation and community. Old age can often be a lonely and confusing time with many special needs. God can lead you through a difficult time or crisis through conversation, prayer, spiritual direction and practical assistance offered by our minister and pastoral lay assistant for the elderly.
Leviticus 19 v 32 “Show your fear of God by standing up in the presence of elderly people and showing respect for the aged." (NLT)
