Senior Adult Ministries is dedicated to creating, promoting and carrying out meaningful programs, activities and services by, with and for senior adults. Programs are designed primarily for the needs and interests of those church members and constituents 65 years and older. Those involved in our programs call themselves “Mainstreamers” as persons “living in the mainstream of life.”
For reservations on any of these programs call 713-402-5087.
