Senior Citizens’ Ministry

God wants us to experience His joy and peace so we can overflow — yes overflow — with it! We created our Senior Citizens’ Ministry with just that in mind!  “J.O.Y” (meaning “Just Older Youth”) Group plans monthly socials each month. The group usually meets in the late morning, goes out to lunch and plans a special social activity depending on the season.
