Caring For Seniors Ministry

Northern Heights Baptist Church extends a welcome and helping hand to all senior adults, this is not exclusive to our church family, we strive to reach out to our community and surrounding communities. We have a group of senior adults that use their time and talent to assure they make a difference in someone’s life. This outreach ministry is designed to help encourage others who have a need, from reading the Bible to visiting the those who are in nursing homes, or just doing something to make their lives more pleasant.

Primetimes ministry

This ministry opportunity is open to all who are 55 or older. Our senior adults are so important to our Church and most of all to our Lord. The Church desires to give them a place to continue to grow in grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ and allow them to express the wisdom they have achieved through their life experiences. Our purpose is to meet the needs of our seniors spiritually, mentally, physically, and emotionally. We strive to strengthen and encourage our community of senior adults so that we may exalt the Lord together. In addition, we aim to challenge and encourage our seniors to continue developing and using their gifts, skills, and experiences as they serve God.
