“Rise in the presence of the aged, show respect for the elderly and revere your God. I am the Lord.”
Welcome to Saints Alive! We cordially invite YOU to join any one or all of our Older Adult Ministry activities at any time! We always have room for more. Our goal is to offer fun, friendships, and fellowship for every person attending. Adults of all ages are welcome to join us for any and all of these activities.
We offer a weekly Bible study and lunch, Sittercize classes, movies, in town and out of town lunch trips, in town breakfast gatherings and other special activities and events each month.
Please check out all of our activities for older adults on our web calendar from the RESOURCES/Calendar page.
