Senior Adult Fellowship: Priceless

Senior Adult Fellowship: Priceless

There is so much to be said about Senior Adult Activities in the church!  If your church has an area for senior adults,  I would encourage you to check it out!  It’s not a deep secret that there are generation gaps in our world!  My son recently told me about a chart describing the different generations!

I checked out a few Internet sites on “generation descriptions”; and while they differ a little on descriptions and dates, they look something like this:

  • Greatest Generation born between 1910-1924
  • Silent Generation ..1925-1945
  • Baby Boomers.. 1946-1964
  • Generation X.. 1965-1980
  •  Y Millennium..1981-2000
  •  Z Post Millennial .. 1996-210

Now, I’m not really sure what you can take from that information, but I can tell you what my experience has taught me!  Different generations have different ideas as to what is important to them and how they choose to live!

I say this because I spent Sunday with a group of Senior Adults from our church on a road trip to a dinner theater in Virginia!  It was such a wonderful experience!  (And the dinner theater was great, too!)  But the best part was being with people my age that share the same life values that I feel!  Add to that the most important thing we share….our love of Jesus and what our faith means to each of us!

I love to witness small children, youth and young adults that have experienced the saving grace of Jesus!  It’s so innocent, so free and so real!  I love it!  I’m excited for them and anticipate their own experiences as they grow in their faith!

But, when I am with my Seniors, the bond is so strong as we share our valleys and mountain top experiences!  It’s such a comfort in knowing they  understand and we can help each other whenever one of us needs it!

Yes, sharing time with Senior Christian Adults is priceless!
