55+ Ministry

“I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus”—Philippians 3:14, ESV.

Come and be a part of what God is doing through 55+ ministries! We call it “3-D” living. We are committed to helping 55+ adults to “press on” in Christ likeness by being devoted to Christ, demonstrating His love and duplicating Christ's life in the life of others.
