And the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose” . Isaiah 35:1
The sad realities of our modern church growth movement is the fact that senior citizens have been neglected. The primary mission our Grace Chapel’s Seniors’ Ministry is to honor them for their contributions, long lives and wisdom. We desire to minister the love of Jesus to these seasoned and important members of Grace Chapel who are our prayer warriors and givers. We provide activities and fellowship for them and allow them every opportunity to serve and share their gifts, wisdom, and knowledge with others as they continue their walk with the Lord.
Some of our objectives for this ministry are to involve the seniors in the works of ministry:
- build up their personal knowledge of God’s Word
- Encourage them in the ministry of prayer and other ministries of the church
- Encourage, visit and help seniors who are homebound or confined to nursing homes.
- Promote a spirit of evangelism to help fulfill the great commission
- To help them at the end of their lives to get ready for eternity
We are blessed that God has allowed us to make this ministry available for Seniors as we know that God made this a part of His divine plan. As David wrote in Psalms 92:14, “They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing”
