Villager’s Alive! is the ministry of middle and senior adults at Village. It is our privilege to serve the fastest growing segment of our population – the “60 and better.” Since the summer of 1985, America has had more people who are 65 and older than 18 and younger! The number of persons over the age of 60 years is growing three times faster than the population at large. 85% of senior adults in our churches today indicate a desire for a more vital and meaningful Christian faith. This is what Villager’s Alive! is all about. The Pastor to Senior Adults at Village is Pastor Bob Walker. For further information regarding the Villager’s Alive! Ministry and how you can be a part of it, contact Pastor Bob in the church office.
“60 and Better” Life Group
for Seniors. We invite you to join us every Thursday morning from 10:00-11:00 AM in the Fireside Room. This is your opportunity to meet new friends and become better acquainted with how God’s Word relates to our daily lives.
More Seniors Life Groups Available
A Life Group is a supportive group of people who meet regularly to both discover and express Christian love and friendship. Learn life-changing truths from God’s Word as you connect with a small group of friends who want to encourage you and need your encouragement.
These groups meet at different times throughout the week. Contact the church office for opportunities best suited for you.
