Silver Saints is a group of our young-at-heart seniors who enjoy Christian fellowship, food, and fun. We meet once a month, usually the third Thursday of the month, alternating between on-site and off-site programs. A typical on-site meeting includes singing, a devotional by one of members, a short business meeting, a program geared toward the seniors’ interests, and a covered-dish luncheon. What a great time we have and what warm friendships we form through this special ministry for seniors.
An off-site program consists of a devotional and a day-or multiple-day visit to such attractions as the Jacksonville Zoo, the Alhambra Dinner Theater, a trip to Cedar Key or
St. Augustine, or a four - five day trip to the mountains in the fall. This December we will be traveling to
Gardens for the Festival of Lights shows – and the golfers will enjoy playing golf.
We are also mission minded. Either our November or December program is a live auction (with auctioneer Scott Stanland). What a fun way to raise money to support our foreign missions. We also have had missionaries share their experiences with us at our on-site program. The youth are also very important to us. We meet with them several times a year in the Bridging the Gap program, and we have our own monthly newsletter, The Trumpet
, to keep you apprised of the birthdays, anniversaries, upcoming events, inspirational thoughts, a message from the president.
