Joyful Again is a support group for the unique needs of the widows within our congregation. Each month they meet socially or do a service project to affirm God’s restoration of their heart. They provide comfort to each other for the needs only they understand because of their shared experience. Although the loss of a spouse is one of the most devastating things a person could be confronted with, the love of the Lord as expressed through others experiencing the same thing demonstrates that indeed one can be joyful again.
Golden Heirs is a ministry for seniors. It is a time for them to fellowship together in a casual setting. This group meets on the 2nd Saturday of each month (except July and August) at 1:00pm in the fellowship hall at the church. Lunch is provided followed by a short time of devotion and prayer. Other events are also planned giving the group an opportunity to see and do fun and interesting things together. Some of the events are at the church while others are “field trips”. All in all, everyone looks forward to these times of camaraderie and fun.
Several times a year we have a “Men’s Breakfast” at 8am on a Saturday morning. The food is prepared by one of the men in the church along with a group of helpers. Yes, our men can cook! The fare may be a little less than imaginative and not necessarily on the “healthiest foods” list, but the eggs, bacon, biscuits and gravy are always delicious! After the great food, a few jokes and a personal testimony from one of our men, a guest speaker gives an engaging presentation. The speakers are generally from Wheaton College or Moody Bible Institute and they speak on issues they are well versed on. It is always a meaningful and enjoyable time.
