Senior Adults

Our SAM ministry exists to provide opportunities for fellowship, growth in faith, and service to others who are 50 years and older.

We have a team of volunteers who meet once a month to plan events throughout the year.


Fellowship

Luncheons

September through May on the second Monday of each month from 11:30 am – 1:00 pm, a potluck luncheon is offered in Fellowship Hall. Anyone is welcome to attend. A main dish is provided with guests bringing a dish to share. A speaker or entertainment is provided at each luncheon. Topics have included instrumental and vocal concerts, local businesses and organizations, special interest topics, travel series and more.


Outings
We offer 3-4 outings each year, sometimes more. They vary from a performance at CMU to wine tours in Palisade, and always include a Christmas Light tour each December. We try to find interesting and fun things to do. Typically, we offer transportation through our bus or we carpool.


Hikes
The past several years we have hosted three hikes in early spring. These are easy hikes which are a great way to get to know others and enjoy God’s creation.


Dining Out/Dining In Groups
For several years we have organized Dining Out and Dining In groups. This opportunity is for couples or singles and is intergenerational. People meet once a month for 4-5 months with the same people.  Some go out to eat and others rotate homes and share a meal. It is a great way to get to know new people. This is offered twice a year, in the fall and again in the spring.


Book Club
We have a Women’s Book Club that meets the second Monday of each month at 1:30 pm in the church. If you are interested in being a part of this group, please call the church office to get connected with the facilitator.

Service to Others

The church offers several opportunities to serve others. We encourage you to find opportunities to get involved and be the hands and feet of Christ. Check out the Missions page and Outreach page on our website to find opportunities to serve in our church or in the community.
