Prime Timers is a ministry designed to reach and engage those in our congregation 55+. This ministry is rooted in Psalm 71: 17-18 which reads, "Since my youth, O God, you have taught me, and to this day I declare your marvelous deeds. Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me, O God, till I declare your power to the next generation, your might to all who are to come."
Our specific purposes include providing places:
- To invite those in our community to join us in ministry
- To bring experience and maturity to our congregation
- To grow in our discipleship
- To provide times for fellowship and fun
The ministry meets monthly for times of fellowship that are intentional about inviting others in our community to join in. The activities include meals in our homes, musical performances at Creekside, evenings out enjoying local cultural events and hosting dinners for those who we serve in our other mission endeavors. Above all else, Prime Timers is a group where the love of Jesus is shared!
