Support, Honor, Appreciate, Respect, Encourage
Our SHARE Ministry is an opportunity to minister to the Senior Adults in our church body. We encourage by sending cards, making phone calls, hosting holiday dinners, and occasional bus trips.
Support. Everyone needs support at some time in their life. Whether it is emotional, spiritual, or physical support, we want to be there to lift up others who have been the lifters in the past.
Honor. In our youth oriented culture, the elderly are often forgotten. They have walked with the Lord for years and carried the torch in whose light we are walking.
Appreciate. Many of our elderly are still serving the Lord in the church body! We need to say, "Thanks!" Many of our seniors are valuable prayer warriors.
Respect. It's not just an old fashioned saying of a bygone era. . .it is a biblical principle. "Rise in the presence of the aged, show respect for the elderly and revere your God" (Leviticus 19:32). "Young men, in the same way be submissive to those who are older." (1 Peter 5:5).
Encourage. If you live long enough, you will be a Senior Adult one day! Don't you hope someone will SHARE with you when you need it?
