Our outreach programs are designed to reach out to those seniors who may not have the ability or means to be mobile. By taking the love and gospel of Jesus Christ to these precious people, we are giving them the opportunity to hear the Word of God as well as providing fellowship and companionship.Our ministry gives opportunities to step out of comfort zones to see that God is present and ready to do through us what we cannot do on our own.
We want them to know Jesus as a familiar friend by the time He comes to get them.
Ministry to senior adults is growing in importance considering their growing numbers. People age - 65 plus - number over 35 million representing one out of every 8 Americans. The number of older Americans (65+) has increased to 12.4% since 1990 (3.3 million). This number is expected to grow to 20% by 2030. This growing number of Americans is living longer than ever before. More than two hundred American reach age 100 each week.
One survey determined the following needs of seniors ranked according to importance:
Prayer is the foundation of ministry.
Life is precious and anyone of any age is cherished.
God will open doors to do the impossible through us.
Who we are is more important than what we have or what we do.
