St. Paul’s has an active Senior Ministries program that offers a wide variety of experiences that include:
Even though we call ourselves “Seniors”, our events are open to everyone; members of St. Paul’s, their friends, our neighbors and people of all ages.
SENIOR LUNCH AND BIBLE STUDY
Every third Thursday of the month we meet at 12 noon for lunch and Bible Study. We focus on the Bible readings for the upcoming Sunday. What did these texts mean when written and how do they speak to us today? No advance preparation by participants is required, just bring your Bible and a bag lunch!
MONTHLY SENIOR EVENTS
Our monthly social senior events really vary! We could go on a field trip, be visited by an inspirational speaker, or enjoy a musical program. Senior events are open to everyone; all members of St. Paul’s, their friends, our neighbors, and people of all ages! Our Senior Ministry Coordinator Team meets regularly to plan and organize our events. Let us know if you have an idea or suggestion for future events!
Our next senior ministries event is on June 26, when we will visit the John James Audubon Center! We will have a live bird presentation led by an educator and a tour of the house led by a docent, followed by a picnic lunch on the grounds. Bring your own picnic lunch and join us for a trip to the John James Audubon Center for a tour of their newly renovated facility. We will leave St. Paul’s at 9:15 am. We are also beginning sign ups for our July Senior Event, where we will be traveling to Lancaster to see “Jesus” at the Sight and Sound Theater! For more information or to sign up for either of these events, check out the links below!
Other Senior Ministries
Other caring ministries include sharing Holy Communion with homebound members, Transportation Ministry for local trips (church, medical appointments) and a Grief Support Team. Many of our Senior Ministry members give support and leadership to the congregation in general by serving on Church Council, Altar Guild, choirs, ushers, teachers, Office volunteers, etc.
