Senior Adults - OWLS Ministry

"O.W.L.S." Senior Adult Ministry Continues to Bring

BIG Blessings to Everyone


The O.W.L.S. Senior Adult Ministry continues to provide a variety of activities, ministries, and opportunities for senior adults in the area. 

The O.W.L.S. Senior Adult Ministry is an exciting and growing ministry of A.F.B.C. The name O.W.L.S. stands for "Older Wiser Livelier Seniors" and lives up to its name indeed.
     The Organization offers friendship, fellowship, and fun for senior adults of all ages. It includes a monthly noon meeting with a variety of programs and covered-dish lunch. Each month's meeting has a focus or an emphasis. Also, the O.W.L.S. offer regular trips to nearby communities as well as distant communities. Occasionally, trips are planned to special activities such as theatres, concerts, and plays.

 


     The Organization has produced church calendars and church cookbooks which can be ordered through the church office for a respective donation. "Phil-De-Pig" is a fund-raiser activity hosted by this group that uses a giant hand-painted ceramic piggy bank to receive and collect change and small donations to help pay off the debt on the new church van. Another fund-raiser hosted by the group was the "Together We Can Church Garage Sale" that "garage-saled" donated used items and placed the profits in the "Together We Can" Debt Retirement Campaign Fund.

 


     The O.W.L.S. is led by an O.W.L.S.'s elected O.W.L.S. Council and the church appointed Senior Adult Director, Jan Gray. Participation is voluntary, but Christian fun and laughter are mandatory. 


     Be as wise as an OWL and connect to the O.W.L.S. Senior Adult Ministry for spiritual growth, fellowship, and fun.
