Senior Ministries

Senior Ministries offer dynamic opportunities for senior adults. Whether you're seeking Bible study, entertainment, Christian fellowship, or volunteer opportunities, our Senior Ministries offers a true community of friendship, love, and lots of laughter! For more information on how to get involved, contact Rev. Dr. Karen Anderson, Pastor of Visitation & Senior Life.
Where can you have a delicious, hearty meal and enjoy warm fellowship with old and new friends followed by wonderful entertainment – all for just $7?! From September through May, on the second Thursday of each month, we come together for this vibrant and growing outreach ministry. We’ve enjoyed the talents of many local musicians making for quite a variety of events including the Ambridge Area High School Steel Drum Band, John Cannon on the piano, and a world class whistler! All luncheons are served at 12:00 Noon in Westminster Hall and the programs usually follow in the same location. Reservations are required by the Sunday before the program; payment is made in advance with your registration. (Due to busy holiday schedules and winter weather threats, we take December and January off.)

Our next Celebration of Life Luncheon is scheduled for February 8. Lunch begins at 12:00 PM, followed by entertainment by Cathi Rhodes who will be performing Patsy Cline favorites. Register online now, or call the Senior Ministries office.
These ‘senior’ men meet every Friday morning in Fellowship Hall for a continental breakfast and Bible study (the study/lecture begins at 8:00). The discussion is facilitated by a teaching team of pastors and laymen and usually pertains to a timely topic. This group meets occasionally in the summer. Contact Ron Reibie for assistance.
These singing senior men meet on a regular basis to share their love of singing in praise to the Lord. They participate in Sunday morning worship services and also visit area nursing homes and retirement communities with the Primetimers. Reading music is not a requirement, but is something that is taught.
This group of senior adults along with the pastors and other church members, visit several area nursing homes and retirement communities to lead a worship service for the residents. Volunteers of all ages, especially those with musical talents, are welcome to participate. Our schedule runs most Thursday afternoons from September through June and features a special musical program at Christmas time. This is a rewarding ministry that helps share the Word of God with others.
This group for widows and other women alone meets on the second Wednesday of the month at 1:00 p.m. in Westminster Hall for a bag lunch and an informative and/or entertaining program. Special trips and outside events are planned through the year. In addition, the ladies meet regularly for lunch, bridge and travel. Annual dues are $20. Contact Edie Haughton for more information.
We offer a Senior Ministries Bible Study class each fall (beginning in September) and Winter (beginning in January). Classes are offered as part of our Newlife Class opportunities. For registration and additional details, visit our Newlife Classes page.
