Senior adults are a vital part of our church family. Here at CLA we are excited about God’s plan for our lives and know that at any age an ordinary life surrendered to our Lord Jesus Christ has extraordinary potential. Forever Young ministries are for senior adults near or beyond the age of 55. All seniors are welcome to join our monthly fellowship dinners that not only offer great food and fellowship, but also inspire and lift the soul. Our goal is to stay young at heart by providing dynamic programs and ministry opportunities that foster fellowship and outreach beyond our church.
Forever Young Dinners
Each month a themed dinner is offered to seniors; dinners usually occur on the 3rd Tuesday of each month. Dinners offer a variety of food and entertainment – with a purpose. Sometimes we have an old-fashioned hymn-sing, sometimes we have a mini concert and sometimes we simply gather after the meal for meaningful fellowship.
Prayer Partner Project
Each year we connect seniors in our church with youth who are going on missions trips. Our goal is to provide a seasoned prayer covering for the young people and to bridge generational gaps.
There are many small groups that run specifically for senior adults. More information on GROW Life Groups.
Sunday AM Life Groups
There is a class that meets weekly that is attended primarily by seniors, although seniors are encouraged to attend any Sunday morning Life Group that sparks their interest. More information on Sunday Morning Life Groups.
In any given year there are 40-50 people who are homebound for a variety of reasons. A ministry team primarily of seniors visits our homebound and maintains the link between our church and those who cannot get to our services. More information on CLA’s Homebound ministry.
