Retirees

Retirees make up about half of our congregation, and over 10% of our active members are over 80 years old!

We offer several ministries led by seniors and designed especially for seniors, including XYZers, Brown Baggers, and the Chair Exercise Group. Our seniors are also active in many of our intergenerational ministries. Several seniors also volunteer in the church office or with our ministries to children and youth.

Most of our retired members live in their own homes, but we have a strong representation in the independent living and assisted living sections of these facilities:

Green Ridge Village
Cumberland Crossing
The Church of God Home
Thornwald Home
Chapel Pointe
Todd Home
Manor Care
Forest Park

Our Deacons (lay caregivers) reach out to homebound members regularly, bringing home communion once a year, providing CD copies of our worship services, and offering meals, medical equipment, and transportation on a temporary emergency basis.
