We as a Century Baptist church family welcome people of all ages in fellowship through Christ, and we continue to minister to the souls of people throughout their lives up to the point that they cross the threshold from this side of life and into eternity.
Those who are 60 years old and older have as much place and importance in God’s kingdom as those who are younger. Jesus’ command in the gospels to make disciples extends to the senior adult just as it does for the young person, and so senior adult ministry here includes sharing the gospel among those who are senior adults, building the faith and life of those who are older, and helping senior adults understand their spiritual gifts and talents which continue to be valuable to the Lord Jesus for as long as people are on this earth. Our physical and mental agility may or may not change as we get older, but “the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable” (Romans 11:29, ESV 2016).
The Century church family is committed to seeing every adult connected into a community life group or other small group, without promoting segregation of generations. Therefore, we encourage every senior adult to be involved with a neighborhood group or Bible study, as part of this vision. At the same time, every generation has unique needs, developmental stages, and interests, so Century Baptist seeks to care for the senior adult in the uniqueness of his or her generation while at the same time encouraging multi-generational interaction in broader fellowship, worship, and ministry.
Senior adult ministry takes place together on the church premises each week, as well as outside the walls of this building throughout the week. This portion of the church website gives an idea of what is happening in behalf of senior adults. Check back often to see what is coming up!
