The theme verse for our Seniors Ministry is found in Psalm 71:18 “So even to old age and gray hairs, O God, do not forsake me, until I proclaim your might to another generation, your power to all those to come.” And our goal as Christian believers is found in this verse, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that Day,” (2 Timothy 4:7-8)
The focus of the senior’s ministry is Jesus Christ and Him alone! Our desire is to worship Him, walk with Him, and work for Him as we participate together in fun, fellowship, and study with folks in that beautiful 60+ category.
Mixed Seniors Study and Fellowship
Seniors’ mixed Bible study meets up in the youth area on Thursdays each week, from 9:30 to 11:30am, September – June. We start with some fellowship and coffee at 9:30 and then have a DVD session, followed by breakout discussion groups. Most studies come with a guide at a cost of $10-15.
On the weeks that our Agape program is held the study will not take place.
AGAPE Fellowship and Lunch
The senior’s AGAPE program is held five times during the year, on the first Thursday of these months: October, December, February, April, and June. The program begins promptly at 10:30am with Christian entertainment and is followed by a delicious hot meal at noon. The cost for this entire program is only $15. Tickets are needed to attend as there is limited room for 220 people.
This program is open to all seniors in Oakville, Burlington, Mississauga, and beyond. For more information please call the church at 905-827-4888 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. When coming for the first time, we ask that you contact the office to have tickets set aside for you.
Senior Men’s Golf and Fellowship
The senior men of Harvest and many of their friends join together on a weekly basis between April and October for a 9-hole round of golf at Pineland Greens Golf Course located on Safari Road in Flamborough. The golf is on Wednesday mornings, with a start time of 7:45am – the course takes about two hours to play. For more information, please call Pastor Stu at the church 905-827-4888, ext. 212.
Mondays at 9:15 AM the Creative Hands ladies meet for a time of fellowship, the Word, and knitting. They meet all year, from September to June. If you knit, you fit!
A group of us concerned about their physical well-being, meet on Mondays at 11am to participate in an organized fitness program. This is directed by a qualified fitness instructor. It is mainly a low-impact workout to help us all keep ourselves in good physical shape as we fight the battle of aging and illness. There is a small fee of $5 per visit. You do not need to register – just show up!
