God’s design is for senior adults to be involved in the full scope of ministry involving seniors. Seniors are an important part of the Body of Christ with faith to believe in Jesus as the Savior from sin and the sure hope of eternal life with Him. It is helpful to use the word SENIOR using acrostic letters to show the full scope of the need and value of senior adult ministry.
S – Spiritual growth in faith in Jesus
E - Enlightening the mind in continual education
N - Nutrition and health issues
I - Intergenerational relationships in the family of believers
O - Outreach as the love of Jesus is shared in words and actions
R – Recreation and fellowship in building and maintaining relationships
S – Service to others in the name of Jesus in the home, work, and play.
