Senior’s Ministry

S.L.T. Ministries… Seniors Living Triumphantly

We are a group of senior men and women celebrating our Christian Faith. A Group where “Everybody Is Somebody”.

Our Theme Verse Is:  “Ye are the salt of the earth” -Matthew 5:13a

As Christians, we are called the salt of the earth because our lives enhance and give meaning to life. As Seniors we strive to live as pure a life as possible so that we can maximize our ability to “flavor” or bless others in our world.

Our Motto is:  “Where faith and adventure meet and life is always happening!”

Our Purpose is: To exalt the Lord and lead others to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Our Goal is:  “To establish a strong, healthy, Senior Community of Faith.”  Helping Seniors connect.  Sharing and Serving together.  Meeting each other’s needs. “Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ”.

Bible Studies led by our own Maxine Davis ever Thursday except the second Thursday of the month when the Seniors have their monthly potluck.
