Older Adult Ministries


This Older Adult Ministries page is provided for older adults over 50 yrs of age and for those who work with them.  Our goal is to provide resources, inspiration, and wisdom for those who have reached this stage of their lives.  Please do not get hung-up on the words “older adults”.  It is just a designation, not a statement on who you are.  It is our hope that you will find benefits from the articles posted here and that they will be helpful on your journey of faith. 

We want you to be involved with this page.  That is why I chose the graphic at the top of the page.  This is your page, not ours.  We are here to serve you and want you to make suggestions, share ideas, and pass this information on to others who may find it helpful.  We are looking for a name for this group within the KY Conference.  Please share your suggestions and each one will be carefully and prayerfully considered. 

Also, if you have an event for Older Adults, please share it with us and we will post it on this page and on the Kentucky Conference Calendar; there may be older adults in your area who would be interested in attending (not members of your church) or an idea that another church will “borrow.”  Let us know what you are celebrating and any “Glory Moments” you may experience as a group. 

Please feel free to contact our Team Leader, Rev. Sue Eaton, at 502-315-9394 or sueeaton@bellsouth.net , if she can help you in any way.
