Parkside Church

Senior Adult Ministries

Serving Christ with the experience and wisdom He has granted across 55 plus years of living as His disciples, placing senior adults together with the needs of the body of the Lord for ministry.

Who are We?

Parkside Senior Adult Ministry involves older adults in ministering to others, making disciples and growing believers. Our purpose is to develop as disciples of Jesus Chirst while connecting senior adults with the minsitry of Parkside Church.

Our mission is to:

  • Deepen our relationship with Jesus Christ
  • Reach out and deisciple the lost
  • Mentor younger believers in Christ
  • Share love through fellowship activities

The senior adults of Parkside Church are committed to ministering to those around them.

Parkside Senior Adults meet on the third Thursday of each month for fun, fellowship and mutual encouragement as fellow disciples of Christ. Often, we meet in the Fellowship Hall, however, sometimes we go out for lunch and a movie.

Senior Servant Saints

Being a “senior serving saint” simply means you have entered a new and wonderful phase of life with different opportunities. Retirement years can be among the most fruitful of your Life for Christ, if you will make them so for The Lord. There are now ways you can serve The Lord more. Invest these years with the joy of the Lord and thank Him that He has given you a special opportunity to serve Him in new ways now.

So Your Hair Is Gray And You Are Over 55, So What!

Vol #2, November 2018

Dear Senior Saint

Last June you received volume #1 of “So Your Hair is Gray. . . So What?” In it, I introduced you to our ongoing call as mature members of the local Christian community to maintain Christ’s call upon our lives and serve as His disciples. In this volume, I want to encourage you to reflect upon all for which you are thankful.  What blessings have you experienced throughout your life of walking with Christ. Perhaps you only recently came to Christ, even though your hair is graying. Doubtless you have begun to experience blessings that you could never before imagine—especially that of complete forgiveness for sins and deliverance from the sin-nature. Whether you are a long-standing disciple of Christ or having only recently met Him in your lifetime, you have yet learned many lessons from life that others might profit from.

Have you considered sharing your faith with others? Have you considered inviting others to come with you to Parkside to experience the community of enthusiastic, Christ-centered, loving people here?

Senior Adult Ministries exists to support, encourage, and equip you who are 55 years plus in living out your call to discipleship. The fellowship activities each month are intended as tools for you to use in reaching out to others who need Christ’s love. Your leadership team has been working hard to make these luncheons and activities interesting and uplifting. Recently we have extended our planned events through May of 2019 (our schedule is above this text, on this page).

But there is more to being Christ’s disciple than simply meeting together with other disciples. The Apostle John wrote to the early church across the known world “Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the father in you. . . .anyone who does what pleases God will live forever” (1 John 2:15-16).   He was discussing how we are called to stop living to please ourselves and to live in ways pleasing to God, through the power given to us by Christ’s Holy Spirit. John encouraged Christ’s disciples to “remain faithful (1 John 2:24) across the years left for us in life to serve The Lord.  This also reminds us of the very words of Jesus Christ who said: “Anyone who isn’t with me opposes me, and anyone who isn’t working with me is actually working against me (Matt. 12:30).

Should we be asking ourselves in these latter days of our lives, “for whom are we living—Jesus, or ourselves? “

Your servant in the Lord’s Love
