Ministries to Older Adults – “Tried-n-True” lunch and fellowship happens every third Friday – contact the office for more information.  Other activities include a variety of ministries carried out by faithful, spirit-filled older adults as they share their faith, grow in faith, and are an important part of the life of the faith community!

Homebound Communion – The sacrament of communion is served to our homebound members on a regular basis by a variety of lay people.  This is a necessary service to those members that cannot make it to church because of age or other infirmity.  If you want to be involved in this ministry, please contact the church office.
