April Mission Focus: Missions Focused on Helping Senior Adults
One of our responsibilities as followers of Christ is to love and care for the elderly and widows. James 1:27 reminds us that religion that is pure before God is to care for widows and orphans and 1 Timothy instructs us to treat all senior adults like they are our fathers and mothers. As a church we provide missions which serve senior adults and mission opportunities for senior adults to participate. We strive to involve older adults intergenerationally and in ways that empower and encourage them to use resources for skills, knowledge, experience, and spiritual insight. First Church has developed many ministries and missions that focus on senior adults. Our Pastoral Care Team and Good Shepherds visits and brings comfort to our homebound. The church works alongside organizations such as the Council on Aging to provide help for seniors in our community. Our medical closet furnishes equipment to senior adults in need of medical supplies. Through these various missions, and others, First Church lives into the mandate that is set by the Bible to assist our senior adults, the elderly, and widows.
Call to Action:Â Great Day of Service – Postponed Due to Weather
Unfortunately the forecast for this Saturday, April 14th shows the threat of severe weather. Because of this forecast (and due to the fact that most of the service projects are outdoors) Great Day of Service will be postponed (again) until a later date, with more information to follow. Thank you for being willing to serve, especially during this year as we focus on missions and outreach.
