"Retired" is not a word that describes this group of fun loving Christian seniors. This is a family that laughs together, cries together, learns and serves together. Rather than sitting back expecting to be served, we reach out and serve other people. A man once said "you can't buy experience." We want to invest our "experience" in the lives of other people and enjoy doing it.
Many relate our Senior Adult Ministry with travel and this we do. We have been to Branson, Missouri, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Nashville, Tennessee, Gatlinburg, Tennessee for a Praise Fest, as well as Billy Graham's training center in Asheville, North Carolina. These are only a sampling of the many places we have experienced. We normally have two overnight trips per year, and monthly day trips. The purpose of this travel is to build fellowship and see some of God's beautiful creation. There is so much more to the Senior Adult Ministry than just travel and enjoyment. We have seniors active in many of the church wide ministries of Lakeside. They teach classes, sing in both the Senior Adult choir as well as the sanctuary choir, work in Vacation Bible School, keep in contact with Homebound, support the youth ministry, and serve as deacons and church leaders. Again, these are only a few examples of our active lifestyles.
