55 Alive!

Welcome to 55 Alive! This is our senior adult ministry here at Calvary. This active ministry comprises of Bible studies, service projects, and fun events!

Purpose

The purpose of 55 Alive is to offer opportunities for spiritual development, learning, socialization, recreation, and service for persons 55 and above in Calvary and community.

For a debt of gratitude owed to Senior Adults it is our purpose and desire to present creative ways of engaging and involving this age group into every aspect of church life. Jesus is our model of a balanced person who grew spiritually, mentally, relationally and physically. We try to have a balanced program for seniors that will be achieved with broad based offerings that reflect their diversity in ages, lifestyle and needs. This gives each member of the council the opportunity to use their gifts while serving others.

Ministries

The Shut-In Ministry has twenty ministers that visit fifty plus shut-ins each month delivering literature and meeting individual needs as well as arranging and delivering flowers to those in the hospital on a weekly basis. The Bereavement Ministry provides lunch meals or lunch trays to those who have lost a loved one on the day of the funeral. We also plan monthly social events of varying degree each year. We have a Crafts Class and Aerobic Class that meets each week and is open to anyone desiring to participate at no cost. There is a Weekly Bible Study every Wednesday at 9:30 am in the Savannah Room taught by Pastor Kenny. There are approximately 100 seniors involved on a regular basis.
