Silver Saints

Silver Saints Forward and Together !

If you haven’t hear about Silver Saints, it is the senior ministry of our church.  Most of us may have silver hair (some covered with dye!) but that doesn’t mean we are sitting around in our rocking chairs.

This group meets quarterly with a themed meeting, a meal, games, devotions and lots of good fellowship. 

Susan Ivins, Marlen and Dave Rose serving Rich Cockburn on Valentine’s Day.

We also do service projects in the community.  The last one we completed was reading to the children at Bridges.  Currently, because of social distancing, we have been unable to meet in person, but we are staying in touch through email.  If you’d like to get on the email list for updates, let Susan Ivins know at  scivins@hotmail.com

Right now, our service project is supporting the Operation Shoebox ministry.  We have volunteer runners who are ready to pick up your items at the store or your home and bring them to the church.  We are anxiously waiting for our next in person meeting and will be sure to let you know about it. We hope that you can join us at that time.  We don’t care what your age is, but certainly we’ll be happy to see you!

Operation Christmas Child (OCC)

Every year we have as a church participated fully in this ministry!  And nothing is going to stop our continued participation in this world wide discipleship effort!!!  Franklin Graham echos our own thoughts, that the world needs this effort NOW more than ever!  Shaun and her team have been collecting items and we already have shoe boxes to fill!!!  But we need your help, with school supplies in the stores abound and this weekend being tax free weekend scoop up some extra goodies to do one, two or a few boxes to share!  
If we can’t meet and do our normal box filling with the children, we’re planning an alternative!  We’ll have a drive through drop off!  So take some time, make it a family effort – you will be AMAZED at how much our wonderful children want to help other kids worldwide.  KIDS HELPING KIDS!!  Please let us know if you need any boxes and remember there are specifics on what CANNOT be sent.  We’ve attached the below link with helpful information  for your convenience.  We will need to have all boxes ready by November 13th, so that’s plenty of time right?
